Perhaps the most mysterious country music spouse of all, Dolly Parton's husband of 50 years, Carl Dean, has managed to completely avoid the spotlight. While Dolly is one of the world's greatest superstars, Carl prefers to keep to himself in the couple's Nashville-area home.
Throughout their marriage, Carl achieved his own level of success as an accomplished businessmen, and he ran an asphalt paving business in Nashville. Although he doesn't tag along with Dolly to public events, he enjoys hearing about her career and loves to travel with her in Tennessee and the surrounding states.
Following their 50th anniversary celebration, Dean sat down for his first interview ever, and in doing so, he made it clear why he and Dolly have lasted all this time. "I wouldn't trade the last 50 years for nothing on this earth," he said.
Thank you Carl for making Dolly happy and showering her with love for the past 50 years!
