Dolly Parton and her husband of 50 years are getting ready to renew their wedding vows!
The American singer and songwriter and her husband, Carl Dean, had a very low key wedding when they tied the wedding knot in 1966. And after five decades of wedded bliss, they’re ready to do it all over again, but this time around in a spectacular way. People report that Parton and Dean are going to give themselves the big wedding they never had to celebrate their 50th anniversary.
“We’re going to get married again!” she told People. “I’ll have a beautiful wedding dress, ’cause I didn’t have a big, long wedding dress when we got married and we’ve got a suit for him, so we’re going to dress up and take a bunch of pictures.”
When the couple got married in 1966, there were only a few guests, Parton’s mother as a witness, and their married life has been similarly low-key. Dean is an intensely private person and stays out of the limelight while remaining supportive of his megastar wife. Parton said she was “shocked” that Dean agreed to a splashy vow renewal.
