Ep 47 - Dennis Quaid: Rehab, dogs and his spiritual journey
He loves dogs, writing music and inspirational movie roles. Possibly, in that order. Dennis Quaid, yep, THE DENNIS QUAID, stops by Paula's "Faith & Calling" podcast to talk about all those things and more. 

The award winning actor details how he felt called to acting, but why music remains his first love. And the song he wrote for his mom after a stint in rehab, which he says was the beginning of his spiritual rebirth. 

These days, Quaid is starring in movies like "American Underdog" (about Kurt Warner's improbable Super Bowl story) and "Reagan" (out later this year), which he calls the most challenging movie role of his career. 

When Quaid isn't busy with movies and music, you can find him hanging with his many animals.
