In the early 1980s, following the success of Dukes of Hazzard, Schneider was signed to Scotti Brother Label.
His debut album, “Now or Never”, reached no. 8 on the US Country Billboard charts, and his single of the same name – a remake of the classic Elvis Presley song – remains the top charting Elvis cover of any genre. From 1984 to 1987 Schneider released six albums under MCA Nashville including his no. 1 album “A Memory Like You” and the quintessential “Greatest Hits” album. He released his smash hit, Ruffled Skirts in 2017
