Tucker honors Campbell
Tanya Tucker, whose brief and stormy relationship with Glen Campbell was the stuff of headlines in the early 1980s, released a song Thursday in honor of her former fiancé, who died this week after struggling for years with Alzheimer’s disease.
“Glen and I shared some incredible, precious memories together for a long time,” the country singer said in a statement Thursday. “There were some ups and downs and, of course, all the downs were played out in the press. We both got past all that. Forgiveness is a wonderful thing.”
Tucker said her new song, “Forever Loving You,” is not only in memory of Campbell but also “for all of those who are losing or have lost someone they love.”
A portion of proceeds from “Forever Loving You,” which is for sale on iTunes, will go to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.
