Dolly Parton Goes To Taco Bell For Date Nights With Husband

May 30, 2018

Dolly Parton's date nights with her husband, Carl Dean, aren't what you'd expect. In an interview in 2016, Dolly Parton revealed that she and her husband often go through the Taco Bell drive-thru in their RV.

"Carl and I have a little camper, a little RV, and we're always driving through fast food restaurants to get our stuff," she explains. "That's one of the things we do. I'm always in the front seat. Sometimes they know me, sometimes they don't." 

Dolly also said, that while she isn't all made up for a public appearance, she still is often recognized by those working the drive-thru. "I usually wear my hair up in a scrunchie and a little bit of makeup," she spills. "I don't look like I'm going on stage. Sometimes I sign autographs on napkins. I don't mind any of that, but I really get mad if they mess up my order."

Dolly Parton is a country music icon, and she is particular about her order, but not the establishment.

"I love their tacos. They also have little pizzas that I love," she says but they don't only go to Taco Bell. "Date night, we do whatever feels happy and comfortable with us. It's hard for me to get him to dress up to go to a nice dinner because he's just a country boy and hates that stuff. We do whatever's good. We have a good time."
