Jars Of Clay Tickets
Details of Jars Of Clay and the Ticket Luck value
Christian rock is not a genre that everyone enjoys, but there are certain bands which sing messages of peace and love without an overbearing tone and have gained popularity with time. Jars of Clay fits this description perfectly. Having derived their name from a Biblical verse, one would expect all of their music to make obvious religious references. Yet David Haseltine, who is the vocalist and plays percussion in the band, revealed that they tend to "shy away... from traditional religious language". The band has found following among those who are looking for a fresh, new experience within an age old genre. Jars of Clay has received its fair share of fame with countless nominations and wins over the years, including three Grammy Awards and five GMA Dove Awards.

Dan Haseltine and Charlie Lowell met at music and recording classes that they had been taking for a while. They began to write songs together, meanwhile Matt Odmark joined a while later. The group started off playing at coffeehouses through which they became somewhat famous for some of their songs. In 1994, Jars of Clay decided to take part in a talent contest which was run by the Gospel Music Association. After sending their demo, they were notified that they were among the finalists in the competition. The band traveled to Nashville to perform, after which they won the competition.
