"Remember some time back I said I was gonna pose on Playboy Magazine when I’m 75? Well, I’m 75 and they don’t have a magazine anymore, but my husband always loved the original cover of Playboy."

She continued: "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 gonna try to talk him out of that and I hope he agrees with me too."

Dolly then revealed that she had recreated her iconic cover of Playboy in a new photoshoot that she had framed alongside her original cover to present to Carl.

A third added: "You are simply the best," and a fourth said: "Ooowweeee Dolly! Get it girl!!! They need to keep you on the cover forever."

Dolly and Carl – who stays out of the spotlight – met outside their local laundromat in Nashville on the first day the singer moved to the famous music city in 1964. Dolly was 18 while Carl was 21 at the time. Two years later in 1966, shortly before Dolly released her first album, they were married in Ringgold, Georgia, with only her mother there as a witness.
