The first single from Growing Up Is Getting Old is "Where I'm From". This song made its chart debut in late 2008 and has entered Top 20 on the Billboard country singles charts. It is also the first single of his career that Carroll did not co-write, and only three of its songs were co-written by him. "Hurry Home" was released in June as the second single. The album was produced by Don Gehman, who also produced Carroll's debut, Waitin' in the Country.

Carroll and Arista Nashville parted ways in February 2010, the same month in which "Hurry Home" peaked.

Critical reception

Allmusic critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine gave the album a two-and-a-half star rating out of five. He said that Carroll's voice was "warm and friendly," but considered the lyrics to be "coldly calculated clich├ęs," citing the presence of topics such as trucks, whiskey, bars and "dewy-eyed salutes to 'Where I'm From'." Robert Loy of Country Standard Time also gave a mostly unfavorably review, saying that the album showed a lack of artistic growth when compared to his debut, saying that except for "Sorry Don't Matter", the songs were derivative in nature. Matt Bjorke of Roughstock gave a more favorable review, saying that although the compilation "may not have a huge 'obvious' hit", he considered all of its tracks to be solid and well-sung.
