West's marriage to Metcalf ended in 1981. Two years later, she married Al Winters. Her 1984 album, Just Dottie, scored only two minor country hits: "Let Love Come Lookin' for You" and "We Know Better Now." While her records weren't selling like they used to, West continued to tour and her live performance still drew crowds.
West died on September 4, 1991, from injuries she sustained in a car accident. A few days earlier, West was running late for a performance and had car trouble. She accepted a ride from a neighbor. On the way to the show the neighbor lost control of the car, and it flipped over. Many country music stars, such as Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, attended her funeral to say good-bye to the great performer. With a career that spanned several decades, Dottie West had become a country music legend.
