USA TODAY - It's one of Hollywood's most successful - and mysterious - marriages.

He's seldom discussed and even more rarely seen, but yes, Virginia, there is another man in Dolly Parton's life: Her husband of nearly 50 years, Carl Dean. And now the country legend is saying that in two years she wants to renew the vows they swapped when she was 20, on May 30, 1966.

"We've talked about that - we might do it all over again!" she reveals to Closer Weekly. "Another big wedding," but one celebrated not in Georgia like their first aisle walk but likely "at our big old plantation home (in Tennessee). We love it there."

Parton, 67, opens up a little about their highly unusual union. "He's happy staying home and I'm happy traveling," she tells the mag. "Once many, many years ago, he went with me to Hawaii, and he enjoyed that, but he never wanted to go anywhere else."

"We're both pretty much old mountain goats," she says.
