Dolly Parton has announced that she will stop traveling and spend more time at home with her husband.

Both in the world of country music and in the world of celebrities, Dolly Parton is well-known.

Although she has performed and sang for the majority of her life, the Tennessee native has grown to be nothing short of a legend and she has loved to amuse her horde of followers.

However, the 76-year-old music icon has just made it official that she will stop touring, despite the fact that she still releases new music.

In a recent interview with Pollystar, Dolly Parton stated why she would no longer be going on tour. She stated:

“I occasionally perform unique shows here and there. Maybe perform a few gigs at a festival or over a long weekend. However, I no longer have any plans to embark on a full-fledged tour.”

Instead, the 76-year-old country music icon will keep on creating music and devote her time to Carl Thomas Dean, her adoring husband.

In Nashville, Tennessee, in 1964, Dolly and Carl Dean met in front of the Wishy Washy Laundromat. Dolly was 18 years old and Carl was 21 years old at the time. Carl noticed something special about the young woman right away. When they first met, Dean remarked, “I’m going to marry that girl,” according to an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

“Lord she’s beautiful, was my second thought. And that marked the start of my existence. In this world, I wouldn’t exchange the past 50 years for anything.”

In a 1976 interview with the New York Times, Dolly recalled that Dean “holled” at her when he was sitting in his pickup truck when he saw her. She, however, turned down his offer of a date. Instead, a few days later when she was watching her nephew, she invited him over. It was the beginning of a love story that would last forever.

Dolly and Carl exchanged vows in a secret ceremony in Ringgold, Georgia, in May 1966. Her record company advised them to postpone their nuptials because she had a job to consider. But Dean and Dolly didn’t want to wait, so they made the decision to get married in Georgia rather than Tennessee so that no one would write about it there. Dolly, Carl, and her mother were the only people present.

Dolly and Carl have been profoundly in love ever since. The couple celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in 2016. They chose to renew their vows as a way to celebrate.

They will now spend considerably more time together.

Parton elaborated on her traveling experiences in her interview with Pollstar:

“I’ve been doing that throughout my life, and it takes a lot of time and effort. With my husband, I prefer to stay a little closer to home. I don’t want to go away for four or five weeks at a time because we are getting older. Something might occur. If I were gone and someone needed me, I wouldn’t feel great about that. Or I would feel horrible if I had to end a tour early because someone at home needed me and I couldn’t leave the fans behind.”
