"It's High Time" is a song written by Randy Goodrum and Brent Maher, and recorded by American country music artist Dottie West. It was released in October 1981 as the second single from the album High Time.
Although this song wasn't one of her highest-charting singles, it was noteworthy as West's final Top 20 hit on the Country charts. Since 1978, West had been on top her career, after it had been revitalized by Kenny Rogers with a string of hit duets between 1978 and 1979 like, "Every Time Two Fools Collide" and "All I Ever Need Is You". She then went out on her own in the early 80s, with a pair of number 1 hits, "A Lesson in Leavin'" and "Are You Happy Baby", along with a couple minor hits in between.
"It's High Time" was the title track for her 1982 album, High Time. The song peaked at number 16 on the Country charts and became West's last significant hit, but certainly not her last Top 40 hit. Soon enough, after this hit song, her popularity would decrease dramatically, as a new wave of traditional country singers moved into Nashville in 1985.
