Dolly Parton Recreates Her Iconic 1978 Playboy Cover

In honor of her husband’s birthday and noting that she always wanted to pose for Playboy a second time. Dolly Parton dressed sa Playboy Bunny to reimagine her iconic 1978 magazine cover.

“Today is July 20,” Parton explains in the video. “It’s my husband Carl’s birthday and you’re probably wondering why I’m dressed like this. Remember some time back I said I was going to pose for Playboy magazine when I was 75? Well, I’m 75 and they don’t have a magazine anymore but my husband always loved the original cover of Playboy, so I was trying to think of something to do to make him happy. He still thinks I’m a hot chick after 57 years — and I’m not going to try to talk him out of that.” “I did a little photoshoot in this little outfit and I had a cover made of the new Dolly.” “The first one, remember this? I was kind of a little butterball in that one. Well, I’m string cheese now. But he’ll probably think I’m cream cheese… I hope.”

Forever relevant, the superstar singer/songwriter’s Dolly Parton: A MusiCares Tribute special – featuring Katy Perry, Leon Bridges, and Miley Cyrus (Parton’s goddaughter) – debuted in April and paid tribute to the legendary country artist.

Earlier this year after donating $1,000,000.00 to vax manufacturing Parton released a video showing her receiving her Covid-19 vaccination and encouraging others to get theirs. “I’m old enough to get it, and I’m smart enough to get it. I’m very happy that I’m going to get my Moderna shot today, and I wanted to tell everybody that you should get out there and do it too,” she said.
