It has been a big year for Dolly Parton. Not only did the legendary songstress get into a car accident, but she also released a brand new track with Kenny Rogers, called “You Can’t Make Old Friends.” Now, despite years of rumors that her and Rogers were having an affair, the country music icon has announced that she is getting married…again...to her current husband.
Dolly Parton recently spoke with Closer Weekly about retying the knot with her husband Carl Dean:

"We've talked about that--we might do it all over again! Another big wedding."
The second wedding is quite romantic, but don’t bank on an exotic second honeymoon. The couple will most likely be staying put in Tennessee. Parton went on to add that her hubby doesn’t like to wander too far from home:
"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."
However, if Parton ever does want to jet away to some Island in the stream, then she can always call up her old partner in crime, Kenny Rogers. The pair have been romantically linked before in the past, but Rogers insist that they are just friends. During an interview with Fox and Friends earlier in the year, Rogers addressed the rumors:
“[Parton] and I worked together for two years on the road. Everybody always thought we were having an affair. We just flirted with each other for 30 years, you know. But it keeps the tension.”
The pair’s latest collaboration was on the new track, “You Can’t Make Old Friends.” Rodgers also spoke about the song, adding:
“She really is an old friend. The song was written for the two of us. We sang it on the stage of the war memorial in Nashville and both of us were really choked up, because it’s kind of a poignantly sad song. It’s about what am I going to do when you’re gone.”
