Not only does she do, say and wear whatever she wants, but the 76-year-old legend has also given fans everywhere a relationship to inspire towards.

Now I know what you're thinking, I would also love to be married to Dolly Parton, but that's beside the point.

While chatting with the Daily Pop on E! the "Jolene" singer shared her secrets for a long-lasting love affair and I bet they're easier than you think!

“I like to dress up for Carl,” the music icon explained.

"Every day, I put on some makeup and fix my hair because I think, 'Well, the whole world, I’m out here and everybody else sees me all dressed up, and I’m not going to just kind of go home and just flop on him.'"

"Nobody wants to make out with a slouch!" she added.

"It’s important to me that I look as good as I can. I think it kind of helps keep things spicy.”

Dolly even revealed she loves to dress up for Carl.

As fans may recall, Dolly celebrated Carl's birthday last July by slipping back into her Playboy bunny suit.

“I thought, ‘Well, I’ll just go surprise my husband and just cook breakfast for him in my bunny suit,'” she dished.  “He got a kick out of it, and evidently a few other people did, too!”

Okay, I'm officially obsessed with them!
