Fans thought Dolly Parton’s husband didn’t exist

In her e-book Dolly Parton, Songteller: My Life in Lyrics, Parton admitted that some individuals have advised her by way of the years that they don’t consider Dean is actual. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Parton addressed the conspiracy concept and put the rumors to mattress as soon as and for all.

“A lot of people have thought that through the years, because he does not want to be in the spotlight at all,” she mentioned. “It’s just not who he is. He’s like, a quiet, reserved person and he figured if he ever got out there in that, he’d never get a minute’s peace and he’s right about that.”

What Dolly Parton’s marriage is like

Parton and Dean married on May 30, 1966. From the onset of their marriage, the 2 have saved their relationship out of the general public eye.

“I’ve always respected and appreciated that in him and I’ve always tried to keep him out of the limelight as much as I can,” Parton advised ET. “He said, ‘I didn’t choose this world, I chose you, and you chose that world. But we can keep our lives separate and together.’ And we do and we have. We’ve been together 56 years, married 54.”

Parton advised ET she believes their marriage has lasted so lengthy due to her high-demanding job and their mutual respect for each other.

“Our joke about the fact, when people ask me why it’s lasted this long, I say, ‘Because I stay gone.’ And there’s a lot of truth in that — the fact that we’re not in each other’s faces all the time,” Parton mentioned. “But we do have a great respect and admiration for each other. We both have a great sense of humor. So, we have a lot of fun.”

Had to make a living somehow,” she mentioned. “Even for my true fans, I think they’re gonna get a lot of new stuff that they’ll enjoy when they thought they knew everything about me. They’ll find a few little nuggets that they didn’t know.”
