The album includes twelve renditions of Brooks & Dunn's previous singles, each done with featured vocals from another country music artist. Regarding the creation of the album, duo member Kix Brooks said that "we didn’t do any production meetings about how we might cut these things", while Ronnie Dunn said that "Each artist came at it from a different angle", noting that Jon Pardi in particular did not want to make any musical alterations on "My Next Broken Heart". The duo announced the track listing on February 21, after having released three of the album's tracks on social media: "My Next Broken Heart", along with "Brand New Man" with Luke Combs and "Believe" with Kane Brown. Dann Huff produced the entire album, with co-production from Kacey Musgraves on her rendition of "Neon Moon". The album is Brooks & Dunn's first studio release since 2007's Cowboy Town.

Stephen Thomas Erlewine rated the album 3 out of 5 stars. His review praised the performances of Luke Combs, Brothers Osborne, Jon Pardi, and Midland as staying true to Brooks & Dunn's sounds, but criticized the performances of Brett Young, Kane Brown, and Thomas Rhett. He said of the latter that "These cuts aren't stumbles as much as confirmation that Brooks & Dunn may be a tad too old to learn new tricks, but the rest of Reboot proves that they're still adept at sounding big and burly nearly 30 years after their debut." Jeffrey B. Remz of Country Standard Time gave a largely positive review toward the vocal performances of both Brooks & Dunn and the featured artists, but criticized Huff's production style, stating that "Modern beats aside at times, Brooks & Dunn give a generally welcome re-introduction of their songs with help from musicians who seem to have the right interpretation." Dan McIntosh of Roughstock was largely positive toward the vocals of Brooks & Dunn, praising many of the vocal performances. His review compared Brothers Osborne's rendition of "Hard Workin' Man" to ZZ Top, while also comparing Pardi's version of "My Next Broken Heart" to Pardi's own work. He criticized the vocal performance and arrangement of "Ain't Nothing 'bout You", but thought that Cody Johnson's performance on "Red Dirt Road" was the strongest.
