The 5th Annual Josie Music Awards was held in the Celebrity Theater inside The Dollywood Theme Park on Saturday, September 21, 2019. According to press reports the show was sold out. Artists came from far and wide in the hope of receiving one of the Josie Music Awards. Some artists were over the moon and some just had a great time but it seems from the social media clips and comments that the event was enjoyed by all who attended. AirplayExpress would like to congratulate all the winners and especially the nominees who did not make it and the many, many worthy artists who were not nominated for reasons not known to them, we wish them better luck next year. As with all award shows only the few took home the awards, which should be an incentive for those who did not, to do better the following year. After the awards there unfortunately would be some who would give up on their dreams. Others would lose their expectations of winning and then there would be those who would strive to do better next time.
Well no matter what your opinion of the Josie Awards are at the end of the day, this award show is necessary for the Independent Artists who struggle to make a name for themselves in a business which the major artists and recording companies dominate.
In closing it was a job well done and we hope next years awards show will be bigger and better.
