JARS OF CLAY TOP CONTENDERS AT 2007 DOVE AWARDS
26 February 2007

Nominations were announced yesterday for the 38th Gospel Music Association Dove Awards with multi-Platinum selling, multi-GRAMMY Award winning band Jars of Clay receiving six nods, returning to the front of the pack of leading nod-getters. Having received the second most number of nominations of any artist, this Nashville-based rock band is up for the prestigious Artist of the Year and Group of the Year awards.

The band is also being recognized for its most recent release, with the critically-acclaimed Good Monsters receiving a nod in the Rock/Contemporary Album category, and two songs from the project garnering specific mention. “Work,” the project’s first single released to Mainstream AAA radio and Christian CHR formats, is nominated as Rock/Contemporary Recorded Song, and “Dead Man (Carry Me)” appearing in the Pop/Contemporary Recorded Song category. The latter is currently being serviced as the follow-up to “Work” in Mainstream AAA radio formats. Jars of Clay’s sixth nomination is for the video for “Work,” nominated in the Short Form Music Video category.

Of note, each of the band’s members, Dan Haseltine, Steve Mason, Charlie Lowell and Matt Odmark, individually received nine nominations, with six for their work as producer or songwriter and artist for each of their three nominated works, in addition to their three group nods.

After selling more than five million records over its decade-long career, the release of their latest project finds the band in a position of receiving industry accolades reminiscent of the days surrounding their 1995 self-titled double-platinum selling debut project, which landed the crossover multi-format smash hit “Flood.” Long a favorite of fans and critics alike, the remarkable success of this past year and the Good Monsters project is a return to the days when Jars of Clay was ensconced at the top of the charts and made routine appearances at award show platforms.

With Good Monsters, the band set out to capture its communal experiences and have a bit of fun with the process. The result is an outstanding collection of tunes that are engaging upon first listen, and increasingly captivating with each additional spin: rock hits, without sacrificing the intelligence and depth of Dan Haseltine’s poetic lyrical genius.

Jars of Clay is currently in the midst of an ambitious spring schedule of shows throughout the United States and Canada.

Dove Awards will be handed out on April 25, 2007 at the Grand Old Opry House in Nashville and will be televised in national syndication in May.
