His parents divorced when he was young, leaving his oldest sister--11 years his elder--to take care of the siblings while his mom worked many jobs. His mother married his step-father when Campbell was seven years old. Campbell saw his biological father every other weekend until his dad died, when he was 11 years old. He played piano at his mother's church from age 10 to age 18, and formed a band called Out of the Blue as a teenager. Campbell also won contests sponsored by True Value Hardware at age 15 and again at 18.
