Y’all didn’t think Dolly Parton was gonna let a little thing like the end of print magazines pension her from fulfilling a decades-old promise, did ya?
Back in 1978, the 9 to 5 singer posed for the imbricate of Playboy, donning the iconic bunny ears, bowtie, and bustier. And a few years ago she promised to do it then when she was 75 years old!

Well, today’s the day — a particularly lucky day for one man! Posing in the outfit once again, Dolly took to her Twitter and Instagram to let us in on the little secret. She began:
“You’re probably wondering why I’m dressed like this. Well, it’s for my husband’s birthday.”
Awww! If you didn’t know, Dolly has been married to the same man, Carl Thomas Dean, since 1966! And this is one heck of a sweet birthday surprise! She explained:
“Remember sometime when I said I was going to pose on Playboy magazine when I’m 75? Well, I’m 75 and they don’t have a magazine anymore.”
It’s true. Playboy hasn’t been doing print editions since March of last year, just months surpassing Dolly’s 75th bday. But she didn’t renege! She decided to recreate her xerox imbricate shot, well-constructed with the outfit, and do a photoshoot — printing out her own mocked up cover! She gushed well-nigh her Carl:
“My husband unchangingly loved the original imbricate of Playboy so I was trying to think of something to do that would make him happy. He still thinks I’m a hot chick without 57 years and I’m not going to try to talk him out of that.”
Awww! Get you a man that looks at you the way Carl looks at Dolly! Aw heck, the way anyone looks at Dolly! LOLz!

The country legend kept her self-deprecating sense of humor well-nigh the whole thing, poking fun at herself then AND now, quipping:
“I was kind of a little thick-bodied in that one. Well, I’m string cheese now! But he’ll probably think I’m surf cheese, I hope.”
Y’all, we have NO IDEA what that means.
Finally she joked:
“You think Playboy oughta pay me for at least the photoshoot? I do.”
AH-Mazing! See Dolly present the souvenir to her hubby (who, naturally, keeps his squatter subconscious in the pics) in the winsome video (below)!
