This marvelous night began with a Red Carpet Reception which included live music. The owner and host of the Josie Music Awards, Josie Passantino, was on the red carpet taking photos with nominees and performers. The Red Carpet Reporter was Casie Mason, who has reported from many red carpet events such as the CMAs, ACMs, has worked as a news anchor, and currently is a field reporter for Nashville Insider; Casie spoke with nominees on the red carpet and captured their excitement for the night.
The spectacular award ceremony included 81 award presentations and 39 incredible musical performances. You could feel the excitement in the air as each envelope was opened and you knew you were in for a musical treat with each act that took the stage! Adding to this incredible night was the breathtaking venue, impeccable sound, and impressive lighting.
The awards were stunning with the etched Josie Music Awards logo and winner information. The Lifetime Musical Achievement Award honored Vern Gosdin this year and Beverly Gosdin was present and made a touching speech as she accepted the award. Some of the awards for the night included The Fans Choice Award presented to Gabriela Sepulveda, The Best Tour Award presented to Joe Bayer, The Josie Show Humanitarian Award presented to Matt Boone, The Country Blast Radio Charting Award presented to Andrew Frelick, The Male and Female Songwriters of the Year were presented to Rich McCready and Carmella Inchierchiera, The Junior Category Artist/Group of the Year was awarded to Krush, and The Young Adult Entertainer of the year was awarded to Landon Wall.

This unbelievable night also included the launch of Josie Passantino's new Cosmetic and Hair Care Line "Confidently Ready".

The spokesmodels were in Nashville for a photoshoot for the beauty line the day before the award show. Photos were taken by Ora Walker, who took home the Photographer of the Year award at this year's award show event.
We asked Josie Passantino if she had any thoughts yet on next year's event and here is what she told us "We are excited already about our next event. I'll give you all a little hint; it will be a series of different events over a long weekend that will end in the Third Annual Josie Music Awards.
