Lights, camera, music! The multi-talented Dennis Quaid is no stranger to the limelight, having graced the silver screen with iconic performances in The Rookie, The Day After Tomorrow and many other blockbuster hits. But there’s more to this Hollywood star than meets the eye. Recently, he’s been making waves in a completely different arena – gospel music.

Emmy Award winner and two-time Golden Globe nominee Quaid is now captivating audiences with his soul-stirring renditions of beloved hymns and classics, along with original songs, in his forthcoming debut gospel album titled “Fallen: A Gospel Record for Sinners.” The first glimpse into the album’s offerings was his powerful cover of “What a Friend We Have in Jesus,” released by Gaither Music Group this summer. His mesmerizing cover of Kris Kristofferson’s “Why Me Lord” was hailed by for showcasing Quaid’ rugged vocals.

In a recent TalkShopLive appearance at RFD-TV in Nashville, Quaid sat down with host Bill Cody to delve into the stories behind each track on “Fallen.” This album is a labor of love for Quaid, who not only lends his powerful voice but also served as the executive producer. Working alongside renowned producers David R. “Fergie” Ferguson, Ben Isaacs and Chris Lindsey, Quaid ensures that each note reflects his dedication to the gospel genre.

Collaborations on the album add an extra layer of richness to Quaid’s gospel journey. “I’ll Fly Away” features the mesmerizing background vocals of The Isaacs and Jackson Brumley, while “Life’s Railway to Heaven” welcomes The Oak Ridge Boys into the mix, creating a harmonious experience for the listener.

Perhaps the most poignant track on “Fallen” is “On My Way to Heaven,” originally released on the soundtrack for Quaid’s faith-based film, “I Can Only Imagine.” This heartfelt song was inspired by the actor’s personal struggles with addiction, making it a testament to his resilience and journey back to his Christian faith.

Quaid’s musical journey has been a lifelong passion, and he affectionately refers to his previous album, “Out of the Box,” as a “junkyard of American music.” Music holds a special place in this Texas native’s heart. For four decades, he’s entertained audiences on the stage, enchanting them with his performances on both piano and acoustic guitar. He’s brought audiences to their feet with a diverse setlist that spans from the soulful hymns found on “Fallen” to rock ‘n’ roll classics like “Great Balls of Fire!,” paying homage to the legendary “the Killer,” whom he portrayed in the 1989 box office smash.

Quaid’s star continues to shine bright in Hollywood, with recent starring roles in Netflix’s uplifting movie, “Blue Miracle,” Sony’s thrilling “The Intruder,” and Disney’s animated adventure film, “Strange World.” In a groundbreaking performance, he recently completed production portraying the 40th President of the United States in the highly anticipated biopic, “Reagan,” slated for release in early 2024.

From the glitz and glamour of Hollywood to the deeply spiritual realm of gospel music, Quaid is proving that true talent knows no bounds. With “Fallen: A Gospel Record for Sinners,” he invites listeners to join him on a soul-stirring journey of faith, redemption and the eternal power of music.
