|JARS OF CLAY GARNERS SEVENTH GRAMMY NOMINATION FOR REDEMPTION SONGS
12 December 2005
Multi-platinum and three-time GRAMMY Award winning band Jars of Clay received its seventh career GRAMMY nomination as announced by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS) at a press conference this morning in New York. Jars of Clay has received a nomination for every studio album it has released.
“It was truly a surprise to see Redemption Songs on the list of nominated albums,” comments Dan Haseltine, the band’s lead singer. “We poured our hearts into this project, we knew that it was a risk to build a record on such widely loved and hated traditional songs. This nomination is a brilliant affirmation that hymns are still an important part of telling the story of faith and humanity.”
Multi-Platinum and three time GRAMMY Award winning band Jars of Clay launched its career with its hit, “Flood,” in 1995. Since then, it’s amassed more than five million in career sales along with several RIAA certifications (5 Gold, 2 Platinum and 1 Double Platinum), an American Music Award nod, 17 No.1 radio hits, and numerous film credits and BMI honors for songwriting and performing. Most recently, Jars of Clay was invited to participate in the world’s most impactful concert event, Live 8, where they performed before a live audience in Philadelphia of more than 1 million people while the event was broadcast to an estimated 3 billion worldwide.
The 48th Annual GRAMMY Awards will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 8, at Staples Center in Los Angeles and once again will be broadcast live in high-definition TV and 5.1 surround sound on CBS from 8 – 11:30 p.m.
