What are The Josie Music Awards? (also referred to as The Josie’s or JMA’s)
The Josie Music Awards is a brand of The Josie Network, LLC owned by the highly-respected partnership team of Josie Passantino and Tina Passantino. This team set out and successfully created an award show where winners are selected on their talent, skill, material, professionalism, and more and NOT by button pressing voting. Nominee suggestions go through a lengthy review process by a team of industry leaders and the official nomination list is created from their final decisions. Winners are also selected by this industry leader team (this review team has no connection to independent artists).
Josie Music Awards will be held on Saturday, September 8, 2018 in the Celebrity Theatre at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, TN

“Hyram Posey’s music blows like a soft wind out of the southwest. It carries with it bits and pieces of mountain tops, canyons and the desert floor; and paints with all the colors of nature a wondrous sound both haunting and revealing. The listener is treated to images of smoke on the horizon, coyotes and hawks gliding on airstreams and wild rivers running free. A virtuoso muscian, Hyram Posey is one of a kind…original, and his music is AMERICA!”
