"Lookin' for a Good Time" is a song recorded by American country music trio Lady Antebellum. It was released in June 2008 as the second single from their self-titled debut album, as well as their second Top 20 hit on the Billboard country charts. The song was co-written by the trio's three members (Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley, and Dave Haywood) along with Keith Follesé, and it features lead vocals from both Scott and Kelley.
"Lookin' for a Good Time" received a "thumbs up" review from the country music site Engine 145. Although reviewer Matt C. called the storyline "fairly pedestrian" and said that the producers "[did] their best to ruin" the song, he also made note of Kelley's "distinctive, husky voice" and the alternating lead vocals, adding "I’m not likely to confuse this group with any other artist on country radio."
The music video was directed by Chris Hicky.
