The 70-year-old legendary country star recently revealed that she and her 73-year-old businessman husband Carl Dean will celebrate their 50th anniversary in a surprisingly public manner by renewing their vows.
Dolly opened up about the exciting event scheduled for May 30 as she told People in a Tuesday report:’We’re going to get married again!…I’ll have a beautiful wedding dress, ’cause I didn’t have a big, long wedding dress when we got married and we’ve got a suit for him, so we’re going to dress up and take a bunch of pictures.’
Her husband can rarely be seen with her during appearances, Dolly explained why as she said: ‘My husband is a loner. ‘He doesn’t particularly care about being around anybody but me. He’s just always asked me to leave him out of all this. He does not like all the hullabaloo.’
Parton admits she can’t fathom where the years have gone and says she finds it hard to believe she turned 70 in January. “In my mind I think I’m the same age I was when I came to Nashville,” she says. The singer celebrated that milestone with friends at her condo in Nashville. “I had a bunch of girlfriends over and we had Mexican food and margaritas and laughed our asses off and drank and forgot we were 70!”.
Congratulations to Dolly and Carl!
