Dolly Parton wants to appear on the cover of Playboy again.

The country music legend half-jokingly said she wants to do it next year when she turns 75 years old.

She told “60 Minutes Australia,” “I thought it would be such a hoot if they’ll go for it. I don’t know if they will. If I could be on the cover again when I’m 75.”

In 1978, Parton became the first country singer to make it on the cover of the magazine, wearing Playboy’s iconic bunny outfit, ears and a bow tie.

In addition to possibly making a return visit to Playboy, Parton said she plans on still making music and has no plans to retire.
