Multi-platinum recording artist, Everlast
, has written and recorded the theme song for TNT's new drama series, "Saving Grace," starring acclaimed Academy Award-winning actress, Holly Hunter
, and premiering July 23 at 10 p.m. on TNT. The song, also called "Saving Grace," will play during the show's main title sequence and end credits.
The music of Everlast proved inspirational to show creator and executive producer Nancy Miller, who listened to Everlast recordings - particularly the 2004 track "Lonely Road" - while writing the pilot script.
Miller said, "I was turned on to Everlast by our music supervisor. The second I heard his voice I went crazy over it. He has such a sexy, interesting voice. I fell in love with his music; in fact, I listened to his CDs in my car so much that I burned them out. His lyrics speak so much to the struggle of Grace - her pain, her heroic nature - that I immediately connected to them. I feel like Everlast is the musical 'Godfather' of our series."
Everlast commented, "It was great to get the call from Fox - not only to find out that Nancy Miller was a fan, but also to be asked to write a song for such a cool show. The timing couldn't be better; I'm back in the studio working on a new album. This project was a great way to kick that off."
