Dolly met Carl when she was 18 years old, while he was 21 in Nashville. They began dating in 1966.
Two years later, they were married in small ceremonies in Georgia. Only her mother, the preacher, and his wife were present.
However, when Carl rose to fame, she made it clear that Carl did not want to be part of it. He asked to stay out of the spotlight.
She stated that “he just doesn’t want to be in showbusiness,” in her 1978 Playboy interview.
“He doesn’t want to go to the supermarket and hear people say, “That’s Dolly Parton’s husband.”
