Towards the end of the 1960s, his career and life began to decline. His contract with Monument Records was expiring, and he divorced his wife. Although they reunited a year later, she was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident. Throwing himself into work, he starred and wrote films, and recorded a two cover albums 0 both of which sold poorly. In 1968 both of his sons died in a house fire. In the 1970s he recorded a few more albums, but none sold well.
