In the new issue of Closer magazine, Tanya Tucker pens an emotional tribute to the love of her life, Glen Campbell, who passed away on Aug. 8, 2017, at the age of 81 following his long and courageous battle with Alzheimer’s disease.
“I first met Glen when I was 15 in the mid-’70s at the CMA Awards, then again a few years later in Las Vegas at the Desert Inn,” Tanya writes of the Rhinestone Cowboy singer.
“We had a great run,” Tanya says of her relationship with Glen. “We did a lot of traveling – he took me to Europe. We kissed under the Eiffel Tower. Glen always said if you kiss under the Eiffel Tower, you get to come back 20 years later with the same person. We had some of the best times, and those are the memories I hang on to now.”
Tanya confides that she sometimes thinks of what could have been, “and I have regrets, but it is what it is. I tell my kids now, if you love somebody, don’t pick up and leave them. I said I’d always love Glen, and forever ain’t over. I’ll never get over him.”
Tanya shares even more heartwarming memories of the legendary singer in her emotional tribute. The new issue of Closer also features friends and family sharing stories about the superstar and how he changed their lives — and music — forever.
