K.T. Oslin co-wrote the song and in later years would become a major country music artist herself. "Round the Clock Lovin'" has often been described as a catalyst for Oslin's early career. The song was recorded in July 1981 at the "Producer's Workshop" in Hollywood, California, United States. The session was produced entirely by Davies among previous sessions.
Released as a single in January 1982, "Round the Clock Lovin'" reached a peak of number nine on the BillboardHot Country Singles chart. The song would become Davies' final top-ten hit on any Billboard chart. Additionally, the single peaked within the top-twenty on the Canadian RPM Country Tracks chart in 1981.
