I’ve watched the movie Rhinestone, starring Dolly Parton, at least 100 times – so I have a pretty good idea of what a date with the Country superstar looks like. At least one where Sylvestor Stallone, Dolly’s Rhinestone co-star, is present.
But what’s on the docket for a real life date night between Dolly and her husband, Carl Dean? It’s not as extravagant as you might expect!
According to an interview Dolly gave that was quoted in this Taste of Country article, their date nights feature…you guessed it…Taco Bell!
“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.”“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.”
