Of all the exciting things to come this year, this night will still be a highlight.”

Dennis Quaid Inks With Adkins Publicity
Dennis Quaid has signed with Adkins Publicity for music PR representation. Not only an accomplished actor, Quaid is also a singer-songwriter and touring musician who has been playing music since his grandfather bought him his first guitar at a Texas Kmart. He performs originals and country standards with his band, Dennis Quaid & The Sharks, and they recently released the first studio album of their 19-year history, Out of the Box.
“As far back as I can remember, music has always been a big part of my life,” says Quaid. “My third cousin was Gene Autry, the original Western movie singing cowboy. My grandmother played piano and sang songs from the ’20s, songs from her youth. My dad played piano and crooned like Bing Crosby and looked a little like Dean Martin.”
