Inside Dolly Parton's Ultra-Private Love Story With Husband Carl Dean

Dolly Parton HONORED to Be Inducted in Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

Dolly Parton is out there when it comes to her career, her sense of humor, her style, her philanthropy and pretty much everything else you might associate with the crowd-pleasing superstar, whose appeal has known no bounds. 

But while she's brought legions of fans to tears singing about the rosy highs and devastating lows of love, her own romance has been harmoniously playing out behind closed doors. Or at least within the confines of the sprawling property in Brentwood, Tenn., where she and husband Carl Dean live in the same house they've called home since 1999.

"He's kind of a loner so he doesn't really like being with anybody but me, when I'm home," Parton told Entertainment Tonight last January of her husband of 57 years. "I mean, he's not one to kind of get out there and socialize that muchคำพูดจาก สล็อต888 PG. He loves living on the farm, taking care of the property."

And since they spend so much time apart, Dean the homebody and Parton the platinum-selling artist who's busy as ever as she turns 78 on Jan. 19, they always have plenty to catch up on whenever they reunite.

"He loves music," Parton said of the 81-year-old, "but he's not in the music business at all, so we have different things to talk about, his world and my world, and we work really well together. We have a lot of love and respect for each other, and I think the key to all of it—we both have a crazy, warped sense of humor, so we have a lot of fun."

So Dean being absent from the public eye for more than half a century—unless you happened to catch him watching his wife perform at a county fair, his preferred kind of venue—has never been a sign of trouble in paradise (or Dollywood).คำพูดจาก เว็บตรงอันดับ1

Quite the opposite, in fact.

"He's always supporting me as long as I don't try to drag him in on it," Parton told People in 2019, explaining why we never see her spouse. "He's always been my biggest fan behind the scenes."

And Dean has been in her corner since day one, literally.
