Music critic Keith Harris of Rolling Stone magazine wrote "Aging rock and pop stars often seek a late-career safe harbor in country music, but 62-year-old Cyndi Lauper tackles the genre with characteristically daring eccentricity."[6]

John Paul of PopMatters wrote "Not entirely successful yet not entirely without merit, Cyndi Lauper’s work on Detour is just that: a detour from the norm and an attempt at finding something new in something old."[5]

The album debuted at No. 4 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart, selling 16,100 copies in its first week.[8] It also debuted at No. 29 on Billboard 200.[9] The album has sold 36,800 copies as of September 2016.[10]
