Apparently, fans had a good time listening to the tune, because it shot to the top spot on the charts and became Jacksons 24th number one hit overall.
The fun-loving tune centers on a narrator whos ready to have some fun after a long week of work. Jackson, who wrote the song himself, told Nash Country Weekly that he always aims to write songs that his fans can enjoy, like Good Time.
Ive just always written things that are simpler
just things that I like and my fans still like, he said. [Fans] would just rather have something that makes their day easier.
Jackson added further to the carefree feeling of the song when he released its music video, directed by notable music video director Trey Fanjoy. The video shows Jackson performing with his band on a stage in the middle of a road, and is most notable for its many extras who star in it.
During the video, hundreds of people come forward and proceed to groove to a line dance created specifically for the song. The line dance was the whole focal point of the video, with fake news reporters showing up on the scene to report on how it was breaking a record.
Jacksons video helped reignite some interest in the good ole country pastime of line dancing, with many wanting to learn the dance to Good Time in particular. If youre one of those people, then youre in luck, because the videos choreographer conveniently broke down all of the steps in an instructional video.
