Lead singer Mike Eli said of the album: "To still be making music and going through the craziness of life together is something we'd only dreamed of when we met back in college. This album shows another chapter in our lives as a band, as husbands, as fathers and as individuals that we're really excited to share with our amazing fans."
10,000 Towns received positive reviews from music critics. At USA Today, Brian Mansfield rated the album three out of four stars, stating "That keeps their populist country and heartland rock from setting down roots, but lets these songs resonate everywhere." Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic rated the album three out of five stars, writing that "their strength lies in the sweeter stuff, how they can make crossover country-pop that seems amiable but never cloying." At The Oakland Press, Gary Graff rated the album two-and-a-half stars out of four, saying that the release "touts the virtues of lowest-common-denominator country, filled with sweet melodies, rich vocal harmonies and a careful straddle of the twang/rock divide to maintain its crossover candidacy." Bob Paxman of Country Weekly graded the album a B, and according to him the release is "decent but not quite up to the level of those two powerhouses." At Roughstock, Matt Bjorke rated the album four-and-a-half stars out of five, stating the release "suggests that Eli Young Band has found the right formula for their sound."
