Renowned country music icon, songwriter, businesswoman, and philanthropist Dolly Parton recently revealed that she will no longer be touring extensively, but will continue to create music. In an interview with Polly Star, Dolly disclosed that she intends to focus on writing songs and spending quality time with her husband, Carl Thomas Dean, to whom she has been married for more than 50 years. Despite her decision, her loyal fans are eagerly anticipating her future performances.
Dolly and Carl first crossed paths in 1964 outside a Nashville laundromat. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Carl expressed his deep love for Dolly, saying, “My first thought was, ‘I am gonna marry that lady.’ My second thought was, ‘Lord she’s good-lookin’.’ And that was the day my life started. I wouldn’t trade the last 50 years for anything on this earth.”
Dolly’s desire to spend most of her time with her husband has led her to avoid extended touring, as she is concerned about being away from home in case something happens. However, she is currently working on her album and is reportedly creating a Christmas special for NBC this year. Additionally, Dolly is collaborating with Reese Witherspoon on an upcoming movie, Run, Rose, Run.
As Dolly’s fans, we appreciate her musical contributions over the years and are excited about her future endeavors. While we will miss her live performances, we fully support her decision to prioritize her personal life and enjoy her time with her beloved husband. Let’s share this news with our family and friends on social media and continue to celebrate Dolly’s remarkable career.
