Parton was dressed in a black jacket worn on top of a ruffled white top in the shot.

The I Will Always Love You singer also wore a matching skirt and adorned with a set of earrings as she spent time with her husband.

Her gorgeous blond hair was styled strikingly to where her bangs were pushed high above her forehead and her other locks fell to her shoulders.

Dean, 79, contrasted a black suit with a pink button-up shirt and striped tie.

Parton hasn’t shared many photos of Carl in the past, who prefers to keep his privacy.

However, the singer posted a retouched recording with her husband on her Instagram account earlier this month.

In the photo, the Grammy-winning performer was standing next to her husband, who had one of her new t-shirts edited onto his body.

She also wrote a short message in the caption of her post that read: ‘Find a partner who will support you like my Carl Dean does!’

Parton addressed the rumors that her husband was imaginary during a sit-down with… entertainment tonight, where she noted that it was not in his nature to maintain a high public profile.

“A lot of people have thought that over the years, because he doesn’t want to be in the spotlight at all. It’s just not who he is. He’s a quiet, reserved person,” she said.

The artist pointed out that she admired her husband’s reluctance to deal with the media and that she liked being in the spotlight.

“I’ve always respected and appreciated that in him and I’ve always tried to keep him out of the limelight as much as possible,” she said.
