According to MetacriticThe Way I’m Livin’ received an weighted average of 89 out of 100, based on 4 mainstream critic reviews, indicating “Universal Acclaim”. In his review for USA Today, Brian Mansfield compares the album, which is “rooted in gospel and hymns”, to “Dolly Parton’s finest”. Mansfield noted, “Her run-ins with the devil may seem uncomfortably specific, but the swelling steel guitars carry her as if on angels’ wings.”

In his review in Billboard magazine, Chuck Dauphin writes, “Was it worth the wait or has Womack stayed away from music-making too long? The answer is a very definitive one, as the Texas native reclaims her spot as one of country’s most expressive and distinctive vocalists.” Writing for The Daily Telegraph, Martin Chilton writes, “She succeeds admirably with The Way I’m Livin’, a moving and powerful set of songs, right from the gorgeous opening prelude Fly … It’s great to have Lee Ann Womack back with such a sad and lovely album, which has an eye-catching cover.”
