Dolly Parton’s advice on marriage

Married to Carl Dean since 1966, Parton’s husband tends to stay out of the spotlight. The singer revealed her husband has always preferred to keep things low key.

“When I met my husband, he wanted to take me out to dinner,” the Grammy winner shared, according to People. “He pulled up to the drive-in window and got our food at McDonald’s. … He only likes to go places where he can be comfortable!”

After 54 years of marriage, Parton apparently attributes some of their relationship’s success to the theory that absence makes the heart grow fonder.

“I always joke and laugh when people ask me what’s the key to my long marriage and lasting love,” the singer remarked, noting her packed travel schedule. “I always say ‘Stay gone!’ and there’s a lot of truth to that … but we really enjoy each other when we’re together and the little things we do.”

Though it’s Scott first attempt to write a soundtrack song, Nolan tells the magazine that Trav’s contribution to the hush-hush project was like the final piece of a “yearlong puzzle… His insights into the musical and narrative mechanism [composer] Ludwig Göransson and I were building were immediate, insightful, and profound.”

Asked to describe the the film, Scott says, “I can’t even explain it. You literally just have to watch it. It’s very fire.” The MC also revealed that he’s been in the lab cooking up the follow-up to his 2018 hit album Astroworld, which he described as “embodying all of the knowledge I’ve taken in and trying to make the best form of it.”
