Critical reception[]

Billy Dukes of Taste of Country gave it 2.5 stars out of 5, saying that "'Parking Lot Party' is a good (but not great) party song, a subgenre that rarely gets top ratings anyway. Phony crowd effects only obfuscate a simple song, and this jam would be better without that addition."[1] Giving it 4 out of 5 stars, Bobby Peacock of Roughstock said that " The production is loud, but in a rockin' kind of way that adds energy...and Brice's rough-edged vocal is full of charm."[2]

Chart and certifications[]

The song has sold 519,000 copies in the US as of January 2014.[3] As of January 15, 2014, "Parking Lot Party" is Brice's fourth consecutive single, and his fifth total, to be certified Gold or higher by the RIAA.[4]
