Radio Station Owner Josie Passantino And Country Music Recording Artist Matt Boone Engaged!
Matt Boone surprised Josie Passantino with a marriage proposal on December 12th in Panama City Beach, Florida during a family vacation at a beautiful beach location in St. Andrews State Park. He asked, and she said, "Yes" as beach goers and Josie's family watched in excitement. This moment was also shared via Facebook Live for all of Josie's show & station listeners, Matt's music fans, and their music & personal families to witness. Josie & Matt's music and personal families are very important to them, so this made the moment even more special.
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.
