Music video

The music video was directed by Dustin Rikert and premiered in August 2015.[4]

Critical reception

Billy Dukes of Taste of Country gave the song a positive review, saying that "The How Country Feels album was a commercial comeback album for Houser, but this song feels more personal. Maybe he’s just more confident after several No. 1 hits. “We Went” is not a true vocal showcase a la “Like a Cowboy,” but there’s enough power between his voice and this arrangement to remind fans he’s not resting on a good year or two."[5]

Chart performance

The song has sold 106,000 copies in the US as of October 2015.[6]
