We originally posted this video back in March, but as we get closer to the release of The Shelter (10/5), we thought it may be a fun video to revisit. Enjoy.
Another great night with Plumb and Need to Breathe. And a reminder of why the downtown street festival is killing us all!!! cheers. -matt
Had the privilege of having Need To Breathe open for us last night in Martinsville, IL. It was a pure magic. Check it out!
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.
Monday, March 22nd is World Water Day. Blood:Water Mission and Jars of Clay will be hosting a Water:Walk in downtown Nashville on March 22nd from 6-7 PM CT, starting at Symphony Center Plaza at 4th Avenue. Please join us. For additional details, click here.
