Acclaimed actor Dennis Quaid spends the day at Phil’s Nashville estate, and the antics are endless! Quaid discusses his “first love” - music - and how he’s been able to incorporate it into his acting career. The two bond over the release and emotional benefit that comes from writing songs. Dennis talks about playing Jerry Lee Lewis in “Great Balls of Fire,” where he only had 1 year to learn how to play piano, and was given lessons by Jerry himself. Quaid shares how legendary songwriter Jack Clement coached him in his first music-movie, and performs Jack’s hit song, “It’ll Be Me.”
