Dolly Parton’s remark about having a mé·nage à trois with Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood, his wife, at Thursday night’s Country Music Awards was the talk of the red carpet.
The 77-year-old country singer revealed her sexy interpretation of the term “GOAT” (Greatest of all time) during the opening monologue of the 2023 ACM Awards presentation, Fox News reported.
The “9 to 5” singer brought a goat in a cart and made strange remarks about Brooks.
She said bringing out the goat was a ba-a-a-d joke. She noted that it was Garth’s first time presenting at the awards and reminded him that “they say” you never forget your first time. And the innuendos, if not overt sexual statements, continued.
Parton revealed that she had discovered she was the “hall pass” of the 61-year-old country singer Brooks. A “hall pass” is a celebrity with whom one spouse has permitted the other to have an affair.
Dolly then bawdily said she was Trisha’s hall pass, too. Brooks responded, “True.”
Parton then said she figured out what was meant by “GOAT.”
“Garth Organizes a Threesome.”
Both Brooks and Yearwood had previously been married and divorced before they finally tied the knot in 2005. Parton has married Carl Thomas Dean, a Tennessee businessman, for over 50 years.
As the night ended, she debuted “World on Fire,” the first track from her upcoming all-star rock album, Rockstar. On November 17, she will release an album in reaction to her reluctance to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2022.
Parton hosted the show for the second year in a row, although Brooks was making his awards show hosting debut. And he will never forget his first time.
