It’s hard to believe that Dolly Parton, a country legend, was married more time than she was known. Before her singing career began the country superstar was at the hands of their husband carl dean until 1966.
Dolly Parton, 74, was born in Tennessee on 19 January 1946, so in only a couple of days, she would celebrate her 75th birthday. Her husband, Carl Dean, is 3 years older than her and turned 78 in July.
How did Dolly Parton meet him?
On the first day in 1964, the singer moved into the famous music city outside his local Nashville laundromat. Dolly and Carl met. At that time, she was 18 and Carl 21. They were married in Ringgold, Georgia, two years later in 1966, just before Dolly released her first album.
Dolly became the most iconic star of country music in the years that followed. Carl remained out of focus and concentrated on running his asphalt business. And don’t expect his wife’s shows to see him in front – Dolly just performed few times over the years.
How long have they been together?
This May, as they celebrate their emerald anniversary, Dolly and Carl have been married to each other for 55 years.
In 2016 the couple had a very special celebration of their 50th wedding anniversary – they chose to be married a second time. Dolly gushed people ahead of their vow renewal. She was excited about going to get married again, and having a beautiful wedding dress, ’cause she didn’t have a big long wedding dress when they got married, and now got a suit for him, they got dressed up and took a bunch of pictures.
Do they have any children together?
Dolly Parton and her husband Carl never had any children themselves, but she is pop star Miley Cyrus’ godmother, though.
In 2014, Billboard asked the country star if she had ever regretted starting a family, but she did not. They thought of having kids at an early date when her husband and herself were dating, and then when they got married. They didn’t do anything to stop it.
