Tucker hon­ors Camp­bell

Los Angeles Times - - CALENDAR - — Christie D’Zurilla

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.
