The Jolene hitmaker turns 75 in January 2021, and has no plans to retire. Instead she wants to be on the cover of Playboy again. 

“I don’t plan to retire. I just turned 74, and I plan to be on the cover of Playboy magazine again,” she said speaking to 60 minutes Australia.

When the iconic country singer appeared on the cover in 1978, she was 32 years old.

She made history by refusing to take her clothes off for the photo shoot.

“The good part about me, though, I have my own look. I look kind of cartoonish, and cartoons don’t really age that much. Even when I’m 90, I’ll probably still look about the same way – just with thicker make-up and bigger hair," the country singer said.
