Flood Update from Gray Matters

Jars of Clay's Nashville studio, Gray Matters, received damage from the flooding over the weekend. The team is working hard to sort through the impact and begin the repair phase. Your thoughts and prayers for everyone in the Nashville area are greatly appreciated. 

Recording of The Shelter has been set back a week or so, but the band is anxious to get back to recording when not out doing shows.
