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.

Reception[edit]

"Lookin' for a Good Time" received a "thumbs up" review from the country music site The 9513. 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."[2]

The song was also distributed as a downloadable song in the game Tap Tap Revenge for the iPhone OS[3]

The music video was directed by Chris Hicky.
