On-Air Personality Josie Passantino and Hall of Fame Country Music Artist Matt Boone ENGAGED!
Josie Passantino Owner of The Josie Network and Matt Boone Hall of Fame Country Music Inductee engaged during a vacation in Panama City Beach, Florida this month.
Matt & Josie initially met face to face at the 2015 inaugural Josie Music Awards event in Nashville, Tennessee. Matt was awarded "Song of the Year" and Josie presented him with his award. The now couple were familiar with each other as Josie played Matt's music on her radio station. The two wouldn't speak for about a year as Matt was on the road touring with his band and Josie was continuing her on-air radio work and growing her brand. Over that year they both thought about that moment often, then in 2016, they met again at The Josie Music Awards event held at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville, Tennessee on the red carpet and the very next day Matt joined Josie and her parents for dinner. This would be their first official date and the two have been inseparable ever since.
