Fred Knobloch – Prior to his solo career, Knoblock had been a member of Let’s Eat, a 1970s rock band. Knoblock was signed to Scotti Brothers Records in 1980 when he released the song “Why Not Me”, which he wrote along with Carson Whitsett. It reached number 18 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, number 30 on the country chart, and spent two weeks at number one on the Adult Contemporary chart. Later that year he released a duet with Susan Anton, “Killin’ Time”, which hit number 28 on the Hot 100 and went top ten on the country chart. He had later country hits with “Memphis” and “I Had It All”.

His songs have been recorded by Garth Brooks, Suzy Bogguss, Lee Roy Parnell, Patty Loveless, Trisha Yearwood, Emmylou Harris and others.
