Juggling his musical career and college studies, Schlitt finally graduated from college in 1974 and dedicated full-time to his career in music.
During the following years with Head East, Schlitt enjoyed the success of the band that produced several hits during the 70s. However, during the time, Schlitt also developed a dependency on cocaine and alcohol.
Since then, Schlitz has written numerous country songs and penned several hits for other country artists. Bush also commissioned Schlitz to write a theme song for his "Points of Light" program. Rogers joked at the time that "every 20 years I will record a Don Schlitz song". Rogers also recorded several more of his songs in 2013 for his best-selling You Can't Make Old Friends album.
Among his biggest hits are two Number One songs which he co-wrote with Paul Overstreet, "Forever and Ever, Amen" by Randy Travis and "When You Say Nothing at All" by Keith Whitley. He composed the music for the musical The Adventures of Tom Sawyer In addition to writing hit singles for other artists, Schlitz has recorded three albums of his own.
Schlitt was also joined by former Head East drummer Steve Huston, along with the band's keyboardist Roger Boyd. After a session with Hartman (band's co-founder and guitarist), he was asked to join the band.
Five years after Schlitt's departure from Head East, he received a call from Bob Hartman and was invited to audition for Christian rock band, Petra. He sang his first show on February 3, 1986, beginning a career that would span nearly two decades.
