Nashville country legend Dolly Parton may go down in history as the biggest female vocalist of all time. Her career took off in 1967, but she still receives tons of attention over 50 years later. Especially now that people are finding out that Dolly Parton's husband has been married to the Southern blonde icon for over 50 years.
The Jolene singer has stolen the hearts of many (even country music critics) over the past five decades with her Southern charm and unique voice.
It's hard to stay out of the spotlight when you're this famous, but Dolly has sure been doing a dang good job when it comes to her long-time partner, Carl Dean. That's right, Dean put a ring on the country queen's finger in 1966 and the couple is still going strong today.
People are freaking out because, for all these years, most didn't even realize she's married! Her husband is a handsome fellow that has just simply decided to stay out of the spotlight all these years.
He must have invisibility superpowers because there's minimal information about the pair's 53-year marriage.
She and her husband are trending right now, so of course, Twitter has something to say.
This user tweeted, "Who knew Queen Dolly Parton has been married for over 50 years cause she don’t ever take him NOWHERE."
Another user replies with, "Anyone who knows anything about Dolly Parton lol. But no, it’s kind of a running joke that only a few ppl in the world have ever seen her husband. There aren’t any pics of him anywhere."
It's true. I mean, they must have a bunker or something. Maybe he's just a recluse?
Apparently the die-hard fans know of him, but there are no recent photos of him to be found. The only pictures of him online are from way back in the day.
Another reply reads, "I cannot even begin to describe how wide my eyes got when I read this and then subsequently googled 'Dolly Parton Husband.' You learn something new everyday."
Regardless, people seem to be super supportive of their marriage because the country megastar is just simply a catch.
This Dolly fan tweets, "My point is this... Dolly Parton husband has made a wise decision... Being the husband of Dolly Parton."
Supposedly, the couple has always and still lives in Nashville, Tennessee, but who knows honestly. We guess with Jolenes out there, she's got to keep him out of sight.
For more Tennessee celeb gossip, Billie Eilish just dropped a rare vinyl version of her new live album available only in Nashville and Kanye West is actually hosting a church service in Pigeon Forge next month.
