Dolly Parton and her husband Carl Dean are considering renewing their vows in an intimate celebration to mark their nearly 50 years of marriage, she recently told Closer Weekly. “We’ve talked about that — we might do it all over again! Another big wedding.”

Parton says the two will likely mark the day with a celebration close to home since Carl does not enjoy flying. “Probably be at our big old plantation home. We love it there. Carl doesn’t like to fly. Once many, many years ago, he went with me to Hawaii, and he enjoyed that, but he never wanted to go anywhere else. He’s happy staying home and I’m happy traveling,” she explains.
