The Josie Music Awards is globally celebrated as “the largest, most respected, revered award, and one of the most prestigious events in the independent music industry. Their mission is “to honor, recognize and reward excellence, outstanding talents, and remains focused on the creativity across the independent music industry.” This year marks the 10th Anniversary of The Josie Music Awards, and celebrations are set to begin on Saturday, October 26, 2024, at The CMA Theater inside the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum. The next evening, Sunday, October 27, 2024, the Josie Music Awards will be held at the legendary Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville, Tennessee, at 7:00 PM, following a Red Carpet from 4:00-6:00 PM.

There is an eloquence in the enthusiasm of the independent music artist. Creativity pushes open the heavy, groaning doorway of life itself. The joy that music brings is not felt less exquisitely because the moments fly by. After all, what is joy if it goes unrecorded or unnoticed by the wider world? Founders and hosts Tinamarie Passantino and daughter Josie Passantino-Boone are trailblazing angels paving the way for independent artists to be celebrated.

The Josie Music Awards and their other brands significantly impact the independent music community and those they work with.  Their impact on music artists can be felt in many ways. Music artists stated they reach a larger global audience, greater attention to their work, more media time, more music airplay, more shows, larger shows, more significant income through this acknowledgment and attention, collaborations, essential networking opportunities, lifelong musical friendships, more attendees at shows/sold out shows, professional signing opportunities, press, working relationships, respect, recognition, and a growth in fan base.
