Dolly Parton Opens Up About Her Mysterious Husband, Carl Dean

Dolly Parton Has Been Married For 58 Years, But Who Is Her Husband Carl Dean?

Although Dolly Parton and her husband, Carl Dean, have been together for over half a century, Dean has always been mysterious. In a 2015 interview with Parade, Parton said Dean’s desire to stay out of the spotlight doesn’t make her love him any less:

I married a really good man, a guy that’s completely different from me,” Dolly gushed. “He loves to hear about the things I do. I love to hear about the things he does. So we enjoy each other’s company.”

Parton didn’t hesitate to say that she finds a lot of happiness in spending time with her husband:

I’m also very happy when I’m home with him and we do our little things together,” Parton said. “We have a little RV, we travel around…sight-see all of Tennessee and Kentucky, the areas that we can get back home from at night.”

The interviewer wanted to know how Parton has remained with Dean when she’s met so many glamorous men throughout her career. Dolly said the answer is simple:

He understands me, he gets me. He’s very secure within himself. He’s never been jealous. It’s a great compliment to me. This is his statement: ‘Well, hell, I know it’s not easy out there. I’d feel less about any man that didn’t fall in love with you.’ So that’s his attitude. Because of that, I realize I’d never find that again in anybody. He loves me and I love him.”

Even though not much is known about Dean, one thing is certain: he makes Parton happy:

We get along good,” Parton said. “He’s got a great sense of humor. We’ve just been best buddies and best friends and, evidently, it’s working!

We agree with Parton—it’s definitely working! We wish her and Dean many more years of happiness together.
