Dolly Parton is unarguably one of Hollywood’s favorite, and the country music legend recently opened up about her 54-year marriage to Businessman Carl Thomas Dean.
During an appearance on “Table Manners” with Jessie Ware, Parton shared that she and Dean have been together for fifty-seven years and have been married for fifty-four years.
She also joked that she was sure her husband was ‘sick of her’ as she was of him. The 74-year-old also admitted to her weakness and her love for food, men, and sex.
The Phenomenal Festival
The country music singer also talked about her 2014 performance at the Glastonbury Festival, which drew a bigger crowd than the headliners of “Metallica and Arcade Fire.”
The “Jolene” singer reminisced about the show and shared that she felt loved and appreciated as she had been apprehensive because the show was a very famous one.
She also disclosed her intense nervousness before the show because she wasn’t convinced she would be a good fit, and the thought of getting ignored was not helping.
Dolly Parton Donates $1million To COVID-19 Research
Parton, who recently made a massive donation to the COVID-19 vaccine research, conversed about her love for traveling and said she missed being on the road. Sadly, the pandemic has hindered a lot of activities for the award-winning singer.
She shared that she spends lots of time in her bus in-between touring and always have junks and fruit in sight for the long haul.
The actress recently released a Christmas album titled “A Holly Dolly Christmas,” and revealed that the holiday was her favorite time of the year. Parton shared that the Christmas period is a time to party, be merry, and overeat without feeling bad about it.
The Life Of A Music Legend
Parton is an internationally acclaimed writer and singer. As a writer and performer, Parton is one of the top Country Music artists besides Hank Williams and Johnny Cash.
She can expertly play 20 instruments, including the fiddle, dulcimer, mandolin, and pan-flute. She has written an estimated 3000 songs, 175 of which are featured in her new book titled, “Songteller: My Life In Lyrics.”
In 1973, the music icon recorded two-bit songs “Jolene” and “I Will Always Love You” in one session, one of the hardest things to do in the music business.
Making A Dolly
Parton is also known as a meaningful symbol of the American culture. One example of her pop-culture ubiquity is the 1981 sketch made by Ronnie Barker where he donned a platinum-blonde wig and fake bosom to play “Polly Parton”.
Parton always joked about her enormous bosoms, and the jokes became a part of the British culture so much that when a sheep was cloned from a mammary gland cell in 1996, scientists named the sheep Dolly.
The astute businesswoman was also able to curb criticism by owning up to it quickly. Instead of getting shaded for her decisions, people respect her choices and, of course, laugh about them.
