“I ain’t never gonna be old because I ain’t got time to be old,” Dolly Parton recently joked. Now BIGGERSTARS WEEKLY has learned that the country legend’s 75th birthday is officially canceled! The “Jolene” singer, who has a new book, Christmas album, and Netflix special out now, was planning a “blow-out, million-dollar party” to celebrate the Jan. 19 milestone, says a source, until Covid-19 scuttled her plans.
Country stars like Billy Ray Cyrus, Reba McEntire, Garth Brooks, and Trisha Yearwood, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, Carrie Underwood, and more were ready to boogie alongside her old friends like Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin.
Instead, the ageless star will have a small soirée at home with husband Carl Dean — who says the source, is secretly relieved there won’t be a crowd: “Carl is just about the shyest guy on the planet. Now he’s off the hook and happy!”
