Dolly Parton Goes to Taco Bell for Date Nights With Her Husband
Dolly Parton's date nights with her husband, Carl Dean, aren't what you'd expect. During a chat with SiriusXM host Andy Cohen in 2016, Parton revealed that she and her husband often go to Taco Bell drive-thru in their RV.
"Carl and I have a little camper, a little RV, and we're always driving through fast food restaurants to get our stuff," she explains. "That's one of the things we do. I'm always in the front seat. Sometimes they know me, sometimes they don't."
The singer says that while she isn't all made up for a public appearance, she still is often recognized by those working the drive-thru. "I usually wear my hair up in a scrunchie and a little bit of makeup," she spills. "I don't look like I'm going on stage. Sometimes I sign autographs on napkins. I don't mind any of that, but I really get mad if they mess up my order."
Parton, a country music icon, is particular about her order, but not the establishment.
"I love their tacos. They also have little pizzas that I love," she says — but they don't only go to Taco Bell. "Date night, we do whatever feels happy and comfortable with us. It's hard for me to get him to dress up to go to a nice dinner because he's just a country boy and hates that stuff. We do whatever's good. We have a good time."
Parton and Carl Dean wed on May 30, 1966 and celebrated 50 years of marriage in 2016 by renewing their vows and enjoying the wedding they never got to have.
