Dolly Parton Recreates Her 1978 Iconic Playboy Cover for Her Husband’s Birthday

Dolly Parton presented her husband Carl with a memorable birthday present on Tuesday (July 20th), by recreating her iconic 1978 Playboy cover picture.

Dolly shared the story behind Carl’s present with fans on her socials…

At the time when Dolly did the original photoshoot in 1978 – she became the first country singer to pose for the magazine.

Dolly didn’t show too much, because to her, it wasn’t about nudity, it was about promoting her brand.

She recalls, “I have been asked, back in the day, but that was so totally not me. I would never do that… But that was a good article they ran in there, and it was just a fun thing to do. That was just another way I was trying to market myself, at that time, to kinda get in the mainstream”

Dolly is still marketing herself in 2021, and also still making music!

Her next song, “Sent From Above,” arrives July 27th, but  fans can sign-up to hear it first, here: https://forms.gle/4PrjfVwgX6bMR8ta8

Until the new music is released, fans can still enjoy one of her classic hits…
