Parton said: “I love dressing Carl.
The 76-year-old went on to explain: “Every day, I put on my makeup and fix my hair because I think, ‘Wow, the whole world, I’m here and everyone else sees me well dressed. nice, and I’m not going to go home and just rush at him. ‘”
She added: “No one wants to make it out with a slouch!

Elsewhere in the interview, Parton reflected on her iconic 1978 year Playboy cover that she recreated for her husband’s 79th birthday last July.
She said that Dean “always loved” magazine covers.
“I thought, ‘Well, I’m going to surprise my husband and cook him breakfast in my bunny suit,’” she said. “He got kicked out of it, and apparently a few others too!”
Parton also joked that she sometimes wishes “Jolene” would come into their lives, in reference to her hit song about a woman she fears will rob her partner.
“Sometimes I see Carl leaning back, snoring in the La-Z-Boy chair and I think, ‘Where’s Jolene when I need her?’” she quips. “Come on, you can have him now!”
Last week, Parton shared a photo in a “birthday suit” to celebrate turning 76.
Parton will be releasing her new album – titled Run, Rose, Run – on March 4th.
