Multi-platinum selling Grammy and Dove Award winning
band Jars of Clay recently taped a segment for an upcoming CNN World Beat
special on Christian music, currently set to air nationwide and
internationally in November.
pictured (l-r) are: Chris Murphey,
CNN World Beat reporter; and Matt Odmark and Dan Haseltine, Jars of Clay.
The band was asked to participate in the
program due to their tremendous appeal in the Christian and mainstream
market: Jars of Clay recently celebrated career sales of over 4 million
units in less than 5 years.
The interview took place in Atlanta, Ga., prior
to the opening night of the Jars of Clay major-market “Three o’clock Parade”
fall tour, which features music from the band’s latest critically acclaimed
and RIAA Certified Gold recording, If I Left the Zoo. Also featured on the
tour are Jennifer Knapp and Luna Halo.
