Antoine Dunn wins Artist Of The Year, scores 6 nominations at 2020 Josie Music Awards

2020 has been a year filled with challenges and uncertainty for most of us worldwide. From Covid-19 to civil unrest, massive cancellations of events and rising political tensions, this is definitely a year which will go down in the history books forever. That said, the music somehow never stops for Billboard Top-20 singer-songwriter and music producer, Antoine Dunn.

The Josie Music Awards is a brand of The Josie Network, LLC owned by the highly-respected partnership team of Josie Passantino and Tinamarie Passantino.  This team set out and successfully created an award show where winners are selected on their talent, skill, material and professionalism. Since its inaugural celebration in 2015, the Josie Music Awards was, is, and remains the largest independent artist award show globally.

It comes as no surprise that Dunn's very talented label mate, Ashley Chante would find her way into the conversation. Together, the two would be acknowledged for their collaborative work on Dunn's song, "Come Around". Chante was very instrumental on Dunn's sophomore project and has her own plans to release new music sometime in 2021.
