WASHINGTON, March 24 (UPI) -- U.S. country music star Dolly Parton insists that, at 63, she has no plans to retire.

"The music business is not what it used to be. After you reach a certain age, they think you're over," Parton told AARP The Magazine. "Well, I will never be over. I'll be making records if I have to sell them out of the trunk of my car. I've done that in my past, and I'd do it again."

Parton -- who has recorded 80 albums, garnered 25 No. 1 singles and published more than 3,000 of her own songs -- also dished with the magazine about Carl Dean, her husband of 43 years.

"We're not together enough to get on each other's nerves," Parton said. "Carl has always been proud of me. As long as I don't drag him into my work, he's fine and lets me do what I want to do. ... I know we'll never divorce. He always knows I'm coming home."
