Dolly Parton Recreates Her 1978 Iconic Playboy Cover for Her Husband’s Birthday

Dolly Parton Recreates Her 1978 Iconic Playboy Cover for Her Husband’s Birthday

Dolly Parton presented her husband Carl with a memorable birthday present on Tuesday (July 20th), by recreating her iconic 1978 Playboy cover picture.

Dolly shared the story behind Carl’s present with fans on her socials…

At the time when Dolly did the original photoshoot in 1978 – she became the first country singer to pose for the magazine.

Dolly didn’t show too much, because to her, it wasn’t about nudity, it was about promoting her brand.

She recalls, “I have been asked, back in the day, but that was so totally not me. I would never do that… But that was a good article they ran in there, and it was just a fun thing to do. That was just another way I was trying to market myself, at that time, to kinda get in the mainstream”

Dolly is still marketing herself in 2021, and also still making music!

Her next song, “Sent From Above,” arrives July 27th, but  fans can sign-up to hear it first, here:

Until the new music is released, fans can still enjoy one of her classic hits…

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
