The country legend and award-winning artist known for her blonde locks, dazzling outfits, and musical masterpieces has been happily married to her husband for 50 years, and her deep love for him is nowhere more visible than in a song she wrote – just for him.
Dolly Parton and husband Carl Dean wed on May 30th, 1966 and have been one of country music’s beautiful love stories that have stood the test of time. On their recent “Golden Anniversary” they celebrated in a big fashion and renewed their vows to one another.
Composed as an ode to her doting husband, “From Here to the Moon and Back”, was first featured on her 2012 film, Joyful Noise, and later was issued as a duet with her and Willie Nelson on his album, To All the Girls…, the following year.
With lyrics like “I could hold out my arms, say ‘I love you this much'” and “Love everlasting, I promise you that”, you can truly feel how much she loves her wonderful husband.
Although Dolly has been squarely in the spotlight for the entirety of their marriage, Carl hasn’t really cared much to be part of that world. As Dolly cutely states, “He does not like all the hullabaloo.”
Even though they do not make many public appearances together, they surely do love each other and have proved that for the half-century they’ve spent together.
