6. Johnny Cash Was Her First Crush
When she was a teenager, she performed at the Grand Ole Opry, which is where she first met Johnny Cash.

"I was sitting in the audience and that's when I first knew about sex appeal, someone striking and made me feel something inside," she told Nightline. "He had this tick when he moved his shoulder… and it was still sexy. It still got to me."

It wasn't until several years later that she would meet the true love of her life, Carl Thomas Dean. The two met at the Wishy Washy laundromat in Nashville when she was 18 years old. They married two years later in 1966.
