NEW YORK, N.Y.
Emmy®️ Award winner and two-time Golden Globe®️ nominee Dennis Quaid performed the title track from his Gaither Music Group No. 1 album, Fallen: A Gospel Record for Sinners, on ABC News’ “Good Morning America.
Released July 28, 2023, Fallen debuted at No. 1 on Top Christian/Gospel Albums chart and landed in the Top 15 on Billboard’s Top 200 Christian/Gospel chart. The album also ranked No. 1 on Amazon’s Best Sellers in CDs & Vinyl, Hot New Releases in Christian & Gospel and Best Sellers in Country charts.
Combining soul-stirring renditions of seven hymns and classics with five original songs, Quaid delivers honest, inspiring lyrics sung with unmistakable tones that reflect heartfelt gratitude and eternal hope. In celebration of the release, Quaid graced the August cover of PEOPLE, where he took readers inside The Clement House recording studio and his Nashville home, opening up about faith, love and second chances.
“Dennis Quaid’s Christianity is at the forefront of his new album, an homage to the faith he says got him out of addiction,” writes USA Today. Variety adds, “His commitment to his belief in music and in his Christian religion, which began in his Texas youth, comes to life quite emotionally and rousingly.” Garden & Gun summarizes, “Dennis Quaid’s nearly fifty-year career is marked by both its prolificacy and its high quality. Silver screen, small screen, even your music stream—the Houston native has them covered.”
Fallen was executive produced by Quaid with producers David R. “Fergie” Ferguson, Ben Isaacs and Chris Lindsey. The Isaacs and Jackson Brumley supply background vocals on “I’ll Fly Away,” while The Oak Ridge Boys join Quaid on “Life’s Railway to Heaven.” Originally released on the soundtrack for Quaid’s faith-based film I CAN ONLY IMAGINE, “On My Way to Heaven” was inspired by the global superstar’s public grapple with addiction. Quaid also vulnerably acknowledges these personal struggles and his subsequent return to Christianity on songs like the title track.
The 12-song collection follows Quaid’s 2018 album, Out of the Box, described by Quaid as a junkyard of American music. Though he loves writing, recording and making movies, music holds a special place in the Texas native’s heart, and for the last four decades, he has toured extensively, displaying equal ease on the piano and acoustic guitar. Quaid enchants audiences with a set list that ranges from songs such as those included on Fallen to rock ‘n’ roll standards like “Great Balls of Fire!,” an homage to “the Killer,” whom he portrayed in the 1989 box office smash.
Also known for his roles in THE ROOKIE, THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW, TRAFFIC, VANTAGE POINT, FREQUENCY, THE PARENT TRAP, SOUL SURFER, THE RIGHT STUFF, BREAKING AWAY and MIDWAY, Quaid’s recent acting roles include starring as Sherrill Lynn, a Deputy U.S. Marshall, in Paramount+’s YELLOWSTONE spin-off series LAWMEN: BASS REEVES, and portraying the 40th U.S. president in the upcoming biopic REAGAN.
