According to The Sun U.K., actor Dennis Quaid convinced some viewers of a talk show he was drinking heavy alcohol during a live TV interview in 2017. Some took note that the star of such films as “The Big Easy,” “The Parent Trap,” and “A Dog’s Purpose” kept drinking from a glass during his appearance, although the report also pointed out all of his responses were coherent, just as they were during the CMT Awards Monday night.
The 68-year-old actor appeared on the red carpet before the awards show with his wife, Laura Savoie (via Fox News). In a video posted on the CMT website, Quaid explained that he has a gospel album releasing in October that will feature collaborations with legendary music groups The Oak Ridge Boys and The Jordanaires. “I wrote half the songs,” Quaid said. “Half the songs are stuff I grew up with in the Baptist church.”
Whether or not Quaid had started partying early, Maddie & Tae’s Maddie Font made it clear she was ready to keep the party going in a video posted to CMT’s Twitter account with the caption, “Y’all taking home a #CMTAward is definitely worth a party!”
