Dolly Parton Is Getting Married… Again!

Just married couple kissing with pink flower petalsTime flies when you are having fun! Can you believe that it has been nearly 50 years since the Smoky Mountain sweetheart Dolly Parton and her husband Carl Dean first said “I do”?

Parton and Dean were first married when Dolly was 20 years old. The couple met when Dolly first arrived in Nashville outside of a laundromat in 1964. After two years of dating the couple celebrated their love for one another in a quaint ceremony in Ringgold, Georgia on May 30, 1966.

Now, nearly half a century later, the two plan to once again walk down the aisle in wedded bliss for their 50th wedding anniversary in 2016. The big difference this time around, however, is that the two plan to hold their ceremony at home in Tennessee at their plantation-style home. Not to mention, the Smoky Mountain wedding event is expected to be nothing short of spectacular in true Dolly fashion!

Not typically in the spotlight, Carl Dean is most well known for his reserved personality. Very much the opposite of his wife, Dolly often jokes about how much Carl loves staying at home and keeping things low-key. While Dolly has made her fortune with her voice, Carl is the proud owner of his own company, The Dean and Dean Asphalt Paving Company, in Nashville, Tenn.
