It may be more than two years away, but Dolly Parton is planning to celebrate her 50th anniversary with husband Carl Dean in a very special way.

The country music icon reveals to Closer Weekly that the private pair will renew their wedding vows to commemorate the milestone occasion in 2016.

Parton and Dean were married May 30, 1966 in Georgia, when the Grammy winner was 20 years old. They have no children together.

"We've talked about that—we might do it all over again!" the 67-year-old singer tells the mag. "Another big wedding."

Parton dishes that the ceremony and party will likely take place close at the couple's "big old plantation home" in Tennessee with family and friends.

"Carl doesn't like to fly," she reveals. "Once many, many years ago, he went with me to Hawaii, and he enjoyed that, but he never wanted to go anywhere else."

No destination wedding for this couple!

"He's happy staying home and I'm happy traveling," she added.

And while they may have differing views on travel, she admits that they're "both pretty much old mountain goats."
