In 2016 the Josie Music Awards quadrupled its growth from the prior year's event. The pre-gathering celebration was the night before the event at Belcourt Taps, where the crowd filled the venue, outside decks, and poured onto the sidewalks.

The growth this year included the reformatting of The Josie Show (which debuted in 2009) and started it all. The Josie Show also began a Songwriters Night Series that will continue into 2017.
Josie launched a brand new beauty line "Confidently Ready by Josie Passantino" (including cosmetics, skin care, and hair care products). Josie's spokesmodels included independent artists, actors, managers, and professional models. The initial photoshoot took place at an Italian Villa in Franklin, Tennessee with photographer Ora Walker of Ora Walker Photography. Josie said, "Ora Walker went above and beyond and we can't thank her enough. She did an incredible job and it was a lot of work." The official launch took place at The Josie Music Awards in September when Josie and Tina brought their spokesmodels out on stage and independent music artist Annemarie Picerno and her guitarist sang the Confidently Ready jingle she submitted to The Josie Network. It was a wonderful moment and a great part of the night.

This is a collection of independent, up and coming, and long career artists, songwriters, and those in the industry that offer services to music artists telling their stories of their music journeys. It's a must read!
