Dolly Parton 10 Fast Facts, Biography, Wiki

Parton is the fourth of 12 children. Her siblings are: Willadeene, David Wilburn, Coy Denver, Robert Lee, Stella Mae, Cassie Nan, Randle Huston (deceased), Larry Gerald (deceased), twins Floyd Estel (deceased) and Frieda Estelle, and Rachel Ann. On May 30, 1966, Parton and Carl Thomas Dean (born July 20, 1942, in Nashville, Tennessee), were married in Ringgold, Georgia. Although Parton does not use Dean’s surname professionally, she has stated that her passport reads “Dolly Parton Dean” and that she sometimes uses Dean when signing contracts. Dean, who is retired from running an asphalt road-paving business in Nashville, has always shunned publicity and rarely accompanies his wife to any events. Parton has jokingly said he has only seen her perform once. She also has said in interviews that, although it appears they spend little time together, it is simply that nobody sees him publicly. She has commented on Dean’s romantic side, saying that he does spontaneous things to surprise her and sometimes even writes poems for her. In 2011 Parton said, “We’re really very proud of our marriage. It’s the first for both of us. And the last.” On May 6, 2016, Parton announced that she and her husband would renew their vows in honor of their 50th wedding anniversary later in the month. Parton and Dean helped raise several of Parton’s younger siblings in Nashville, leading her nieces and nephews to refer to them as “Uncle Peepaw” and “Aunt Granny;” the latter a moniker that later lent its name to one of Parton’s Dollywood restaurants. As she suffered from endometriosis, a condition which eventually required her to undergo a hysterectomy, the couple have no children of their own. Parton is the godmother of singer-songwriter and actress Miley Cyrus. On Jan. 19, 1946 while snow fell over the Smoky Mountains, Dolly Rebecca Parton was born. Dr. Robert F. Thomas brought Dolly into the world. It’s said that the country doctor was paid a sack of cornmeal for delivering her. Dolly grew up in Locust Ridge in the Great Smoky Mountains. Dolly’s mother, Avie Lee Owens Parton, married her father, Lee Parton, in 1939 when the couple was still very young. “I get a lot of my spirituality and my music from my mom. But I’ve got my daddy’s nerve and determination and work ethic,” Dolly wrote in Songteller. Dolly was born the fourth child out of the 12 kids her parents had. By the time Avie and Lee were 35 and 37 respectively, they had a dozen children. Dolly was raised in shacks and cabins without heat, indoor plumbing, electricity, or running water. As a child, her clothes and toys were all homemade. Dolly started writing songs as a toddler. Her first song was about her corncob doll named “Little Tiny Tasseltop.” Her mother wrote the lyrics down for her. Dolly’s song “My Tennessee Mountain Home” describes growing up in the Smoky Mountains. A recreation of her childhood home with some of the family’s original furniture can be seen at The Chasing Rainbow Museum at Dollywood.
