This first presentation for the Bobby Ray Boone Music Foundation was so special and sentimental to son Matt Boone because Oakley is the same age Matt was when his father bought him his first guitar. Matt has never put it down since. Matt Boone, Leader of The Bobby Ray Boone Music Foundation, is so happy to give the gift of music to Oakley as his dad gave to him years ago.
The Bobby Ray Boone Music Foundation is created by Tinamarie Passantino and Josie Passantino-Boone as a brand under the Josie Music Association, LLC. The foundation was started on September 18, 2021 and was announced at the 7th Annual Josie Music Awards Ceremony as a heart warming surprise to Matt Boone. The foundation was created in memory of Matt's late father Bobby Ray Boone. During the award ceremony Matt was presented with a plaque and custom cowboy hat, created by Dueling Banjo Hat Company, in memory of his late father. Bobby was a huge supporter of Matt's dream to play music and made sure he always had everything he needed. Matt wanted to keep that generosity going by helping other children of all ages be able to follow their musical dreams.
