Tanya Tucker on Glen Campbell: ‘We Kissed Under the Eiffel Tower’

Singer reveals 'memories' and emotions still connected to the late great musician and performer

Tanya Tucker penned an emotional tribute to the late Glen Campbell, who died August 8 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

Tucker revealed to Closer Weekly she first met Campbell when she was 15 years old at the CMA Awards. The pair met again a “few years later” and quickly hit it off.

“We had a great run. We did a lot of traveling — he took me to Europe,” Tucker said. “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.”

She added, “Those are the memories I hang onto now.”

Tucker and the “Rhinestone Cowboy” singer sang several duets together and were romantically linked in the ’70s. Campbell was 23 years older than Tucker.
