The superstar told Pollstar: ‘I do not think I will ever tour again, but I do know I’ll do special shows here and there, now and then. Maybe do a long weekend of shows, or just a few shows at a festival. But I have no intention of going on a full-blown tour anymore.’
Dolly mused that she had spent her ‘whole life’ travelling to perform but now wants to ‘stay a little closer to home’ with Carl Dean, her husband, who she tied the knot with in 1966.
She said: ‘I’ve done that my whole life, and it takes so much time and energy. I like to stay a little closer to home with my husband [Carl Dean].

‘We’re getting older now, and I don’t want to be gone for four or five weeks at a time. Something could happen.
‘I would not feel right about that, if I were gone and somebody needed me. Or I would feel bad if I had to leave a tour if somebody got sick at home and needed me and then I had to walk out on the fans.’
The Grammy award winner – who also has a side career as a children’s literacy advocate with her charity, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library – wants to collaborate with 70s rock gods Jimmy Page and Robert Plant on her Led Zeppelin-inspired bluegrass album.
Dolly said: ‘But I’m going to redo that really on the money. I did it kind of bluegrass-style when I did it; but when I do the rock album, I’m going to actually re-record it – and do it more true to the regular record. I’m trying to see if Robert Plant might sing on it. Maybe Jimmy Page might do the pick-up part on it.’
