Did You Know?

Interesting facts and trivia about Dolly Parton. By Songfacts®.

Dolly Parton was born in Sevierville, Tennessee, the fourth of 12 children of Robert Lee Parton, a tobacco farmer, and his wife Avie Lee. She has described her family as being "dirt poor" and has outlined her family's poverty in such songs as "Coat Of Many Colors."

The day after she graduated from high school in 1964, Parton moved to Nashville. Her first encounter with her future husband Carl Dean was at the Wishy-Washy Laundromat on her initial day in the Music City.

Her husband Carl Dean ran an asphalt road-surface-paving business in Nashville and stayed out of the spotlight. "He doesn't want to be in show business," Dolly told Extra's special correspondent Alecia Davis. "He's glad when I'm gone. He's glad when I'm home. He's funny. He makes me laugh a lot… We can be quiet together or we can be fun together."
