Dennis Quaid’s ‘Fallen: A Gospel Record for Sinners’ Debuts at No. 1 on Top Christian/Gospel Albums Chart

Back to News

Emmy®️ Award winner and two-time Golden Globe®️ nominee Dennis Quaid’s Fallen: A Gospel Record for Sinners from Gaither Music Group debuts at No. 1 on Top Christian/Gospel Albums chart and lands 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.

Fallen is distributed by Capitol Christian Music Group and Universal Music. To stream and download the album, click HERE.

Quaid is currently gracing the August cover of PEOPLE, where he takes readers inside The Clement House recording studio and his Nashville home, opening up about faith, love and second chances. The multi-hyphenate entertainer celebrated release week with national media appearances on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” and “Jesse Watters Primetime,” “Extra” and more.

“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. Garden & Gun adds, “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.”

During a recent TalkShopLive® appearance at RFD-TV, Quaid chatted with host Bill Cody about each of the tracks. Watch the interview and order an autographed copy of the album HERE. Quaid performed songs from Fallen last week at the Grand Ole Opry and joined Kathie Lee Gifford, who also introduced him onstage, for a conversation backstage about the album and his faith. Watch the interview HERE.

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. He previewed Fallen through the early release of “Why Me Lord” and “What a Friend We Have in Jesus.” American Songwriter notes Quaid “shows off his rugged vocals” on “Why Me Lord” and “honors the humble nature of the song with his soft delivery” on “What a Friend We Have in Jesus.”

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.
