Campbell added seven more top-10 country hits to his tally in the 1980s. He also recorded the title song for and appeared in Clint Eastwood film Any Which Way You Can. However, this period sadly saw Campbell battle serious addictions to cocaine and alcohol. Fortunately, though, he managed to get clean by the end of the decade.
Then in the 1990s Campbell gave up smoking to improve his singing voice, and he was also the subject of a VH-1 Behind the Music special. In the 2000s, meanwhile, he enjoyed a Country Music Hall of Fame induction and released a covers album. On the downside, though, he received a ten-day jail sentence for a drink-driving incident after suffering a relapse in 2003.
