On January 19, country music icon Dolly Parton celebrated her 70th birthday, and to celebrate, she is going on her first U.S. and Canadian tour in over 25 years! According to her website’s announcement, she plans to bring her enthusiastic performance to stages in over 60 cities. If you want to know more about the country star’s personal life, we’ve got the answers to questions like, “Is Dolly Parton married?” “Who is Dolly Parton’s husband?” and “What is Dolly Parton’s Net Worth?”
50 Years of True Love
Dolly Parton’s husband is none other than Carl Dean – her husband of 50 years as of May 2016. Dolly Parton’s age clarifies that the couple married when she was just 20 years old, isn’t that sweet! They met when she was 18 years old at Nashville’s Wishy Washy Laundromat. The couple married two years later on May 30, 1966 and never gave up – that’s definitely a cause for celebration!
Carl Dean continues to remain mysterious to the media, deliberately avoiding the spotlight. It sure looks like opposites attract! Perhaps this is the reason for their successful marriage – what do you think?
In an interview with Parade, Parton spoke about her husband saying, “I married a really good man, a guy that’s completely different from me. He’s not in show business. He’s not resentful of any of that. He loves to hear about the things I do. I love to hear about the things he does. So we enjoy each other’s company. We get along good.”
Valued at $500 million, Dolly Parton’s net worth is sky high! The singer, songwriter, author, actress and philanthropist has been writing and performing top notch country hits for over four decades! She released 41 Top 10 Country albums and took the world by storm with 25 No. 1 Singles. That’s quite the successful track record!
