"Our Kind of Love" is the title of a song recorded by American country music group Lady Antebellum.

Writing and recording

The song was written by Lady Antebellum in collaboration with the songwriter busbee.[3] Busbee told HitQuarters that the song composition first began with the piano riff, which he had come up with at the studio while waiting for the trio to attend a writing session they had booked together.[3] On arrival Charles Kelley responded enthusiastically to the idea and work then got underway in fleshing out the riff into a song. When "Our Kind of Love" was completed the same day the group told busbee that they thought the song was good enough to be a single for them.[3]

Content

The lyrics discuss the kind of relationship a couple has as they go through life, they keep it fresh and fun and don’t take themselves too seriously. They describe their love as "just like drivin' on an open highway/ never knowing what we're gonna find." It is a mid-tempo to up-tempo song.

Critical reception

The song received mainly mixed reviews. Matt Bjorke of Roughstock stated that ""Our Kind of Love” recalls both the trio’s debut album’s hits (like “Love Don’t Live Here” and “Lookin’ For A Good Time”) and the other more textured stuff found on the double platinum Need You Now, the single features an interesting sonic soundscape and finds Charles Kelley getting his first ‘lead’ of the singles from this album and like moody title tune, this one comes off as a true duet."[4]

Jonathan Keefe with Slant gave it a negative rating, stating that it "sound more like demo recordings than the work of a major label act with designs on superstardom."[5]

Chart performance

The song debuted at #80 on the Billboard Hot 100 as a digital-only single. Upon its release as an official single it re-entered the chart at #94 and became their fourth consecutive number one single. [6]
