73-year-old star sensation Dolly Parton still rocks the world with her beauty along with her classy voice even as of 2019. Apart from her singing career, her love life is comprised of a string of love affairs along the way.

If you are interested in her love life, you must have been an early riser in your life. Let’s get to know about who Dolly Parton is dating and if she is married or not because her age is already 71.

Dolly Parton married to her husband for more than 50 years!

Well, bad luck to those folks who still were trying their luck with dating Dolly Parton. This pretty-faced brainy seems to be already too invested in another man for this life.

She is a happily married woman, and her husband goes by the name of Carl Dean. The couple first met when Dolly was 18 and had come to Nashville for the first time. They instantly fell in love, started dating and married.

Dolly’s marital life is something almost everyone today would envy. Dolly married Carl Thomas Dean on 30 March 1966. Their marriage has been stronger than everlasting for more than 50 years and Parton announced on their 50th anniversary they would renew their vows.

 It’s the first for both of us. And the last! 

Her husband is very reserved in nature and he doesn’t like making public appearances much. They haven’t made appearances together in events, even though Dolly is a public figure. Upon being asked about her husband’s fewer appearances together with her, she says,

Oh, he exists, it’s just he doesn’t really like to be with anybody but me. He loves staying home and working on the farm.

They both are cuteness personified as Dolly can’t stop gushing about how much they are still in love with each other. She says,

I think Carl will always see me the way he did when we first met, just as I do him. We’ll never be old to each other.

God bless this couple and may they last as long as forever beholds for them.

Dolly Parton shares about her cabbage soup diet!

“Cabbage soup” diet is very famously known as the Dolly Parton Diet but if it isn’t the diet carried out by Dolly Parton then why is it called so, let’s find out.

The book I’ll have what she’s having by Rebecca Harrington is famous for its sarcastic listings of celebrity eating habits. American singer, songwriter, record producer, multi-instrumentalist, author, businesswoman, actress, and philanthropist Dolly Parton has also been mentioned in this book for her Cabbage soup diet.

I tried every diet in the book. Tried some that weren’t in the book. I tried eating the book. It tasted better than most of the diets.

This is what Dolly Parton actually once said. Further, in the interview with People magazine, she said,

“It had nothing to do with me but I thought I might as well see if I can lose weight on my own diet.” I guess it is a relief that we do not have to go through such horrendous cabbage- soup diet to have a body as fit as hers. Cabbage-soup diet indeed does sound highly, highly unpleasant unless boiled cabbage with squashed tomatoes tempts you.

Pure and simple tour—Dolly Parton’s way!

The tour was officially announced on March 6, 2016, by her official website and the last of this tour was on December 10, 2016, at Thackerville, USA. Although the tour has come to an end, Dolly has always been a profound activist which is why we certainly hope for a few more shows from this queen of hearts.
