Dolly Parton’s Gettin’ Hitched Again

dolly parton

Dolly Parton is getting hitched again…to the same guy. Dolly and her husband of 50 years, Carl Dean, are renewing their vows to celebrate their milestone anniversary.

We’re going to get married again!” she told People. “I’ll have a beautiful wedding dress, ’cause I didn’t have a big, long wedding dress when we got married and we’ve got a suit for him, so we’re going to dress up and take a bunch of pictures.”

Even more surprising, Dolly has gotten her extremely private husband to agree to take lots of pictures so she can sell them and donate proceeds to her charity, Imagination Library.

Dolly Parton’s Homecoming Parade To Be Streamed Live On Facebook

Dolly’s Homecoming Parade, Pigeon Forge’s annual salute to hometown superstar Dolly Parton, regularly attracts tens of thousands of spectators, but this year’s potential audience could be exponentially larger because it will be one of the first live stream feeds presented on Facebook.

Facebook launched live video streaming earlier this month, and this event will feature one of the world’s most recognized personalities.

Dolly will lead the parade atop a float themed for her new theater in Pigeon Forge, Dolly Parton’s Lumberjack Adventure Dinner & Show , and the live stream will chronicle the entire event.

The parade steps off at 6 p.m. on May 6 (Friday) on a route that covers three miles of the famous Parkway through the heart of Pigeon Forge. The live stream will be from Dolly’s float and will show Dolly, the crowds along the Parkway, and views of the city and the surrounding Great Smoky Mountains.

This will be the 31 st presentation of Dolly’s Homecoming Parade and the first time it will be streamed live on the Internet.

The stream will be on Dolly Parton’s Facebook page and Dolly Parton’s Lumberjack Adventure Dinner & Show Facebook page. Streaming information is at LumberjackAdventure.com and DollyParton.com.

Every year, the parade adds a Norman Rockwell atmosphere to Pigeon Forge, a gateway city to Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It features high school marching bands, equestrian units, veterans’ groups, twirlers, antique tractors and much more. There are 125 groups in the 2016 parade.

This year’s high school bands are from Sevier County High School (Dolly was a member in her high school days), Pigeon Forge High School, Fyffe High School from Fyffe, Alabama, and Cheatham County Central High School from Ashland City, Tennessee.

Complete Pigeon Forge visitor information is available online at MyPigeonForge.com and by calling 800-251-9100.

Dolly Parton Announces First Tour Dates

Coming off the heels of a headline-making performance at the ACM Awards in early April, Dolly Parton is heading out on her largest North American tour in over two decades. Tickets are selling fast for the first leg of the Pure & Simple Tour, which will be a total of 16 dates. (See first 14 announced in tour schedule below)

Dolly Parton’s Pure & Simple Tour coincides with the summer release of her double-disc album Pure & Simple with Dolly’s Biggest Hits. The collection will include some of Parton’s most popular singles as well as a few new tracks. Parton’s set list will include the hits her fans love along with a few new songs from the double-disc album. She will also be playing songs that have not been heard live for decades.

Additional U.S. dates for Parton’s 2016 historic tour will be announced soon, which includes her first trek into Canada in more than two decades. For the last 20 years, Parton has only played select dates in the U.S., but her 2016 tour will cover cities across North America.

The entertainment icon is on one of the biggest hot streaks of her career after her hugely successful TV movie, “Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors,” attracted a network record of more than 15.8 million viewers.
