Dolly Parton Shares Rare Photo Of Husband Carl

Dolly Parton and her husband Carl Thomas Dean have been married for 55 years but he is rarely photographed with the country music superstar.

Dolly previously told PEOPLE, “He’s always supporting me as long as I don’t try to drag him in on it. He’s always been my biggest fan behind the scenes, but he’s at home… He’d never come dragging around. I’d rather bring somebody else with me, you know? He’s never jealous of that either.”

On Tuesday, Nov. 2nd Dolly shared a rare throwback photo of Dean on Instagram saying, “Find you a partner who will support you like my Carl Dean does!”
