Country icon Dolly Parton surprised one of her biggest fan’s for his birthday — her husband of 57 years, Carl Thomas Dean — she donned a throwback look she knew he’d love.
“Remember sometime back I said I was going to pose on the cover of Playboy Magazine when I was 75? Well, I’m 75 and they don’t have a magazine anymore,” she said in a video posted Tuesday. “But my husband always loved the original cover of Playboy so I was trying to think of something to do to make him happy.”
Parton originally posed for Playboy in 1978. In doing so, she became the first country singer to appear on the cover of the magazine. According to her official website, her contract at the time had “very specific parameters that did not include nudity,” but she still wore the classic bunny suit.
Parton said her husband still thinks she’s a “hot chick” after all these years.
“I’m not going to try to talk him out of that,” she said with a laugh.
