Dennis Quaid on Music, Faith and His 'Personal Relationship with Jesus'

Legendary actor Dennis Quaid is calling his new gospel album an “autobiographical” record, saying it tells the story of a man who was searching for purpose until he filled his “God-sized hole” through his Christian faith.

Fallen: A Gospel Record for Sinners is Quaid’s debut gospel album and includes seven hymns/classics and five original songs. He also recorded a television special that was filmed at the Gaither studios in Indiana and includes a sit-down interview with Bill Gaither. That special debuted on UPtv and is streaming on Gaither TV Plus.

The title track Fallen is one of several original songs that mirror his life story.

“It’s really kind of autobiographical -- I think autobiographical for a lot of people actually,” Quaid told ChristianHeadlines.

Quaid has found a home in the inspiring/faith film genre in recent years with hits such as I Can Only Imagine, The Hill, Blue Miracle, and On a Wing and a Prayer. Still, he’s perhaps best known to the general public for his roles in dozens of other projects, including The Parent Trap, The Right Stuff, and The Day After Tomorrow.

Music, not acting, was his first passion in life.
