S-K-O, originally known as Schuyler, Knobloch and Overstreet, was an American country music group composed of Thom Schuyler, Fred Knobloch and Paul Overstreet. The original lineup recorded one album for MTM Records and charted three country hits, including the Number One "Baby's Got a New Baby". After Overstreet departed in 1987 for a solo career, he was replaced with Craig Bickhardt, and the group was renamed S-K-B. S-K-B released one album and four singles before disbanding in 1989.


Thom Schuyler, Fred Knobloch and Paul Overstreet were three well-known songwriters who got together to form a band, Schuyler, Knobloch & Overstreet. After the release of their first single, they shortened their name simply to S-K-O.[1] When Overstreet left the group in 1987 to pursue a solo career, he was replaced by Craig Bickhardt and they changed their name to Schuyler, Knobloch & Bickhardt. S-K-B disbanded when their record label, MTM Records, shut down in 1989.[2] Since then, Thom Schuyler became the vice president of RCA Nashville (a position from which he retired in 1994), while Knobloch and Bickhardt continued their songwriting careers.[3]
