PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - You've heard their songs here on our station. Now a local country duo is up for multiple Josie Music Awards.

Cori Wood and Kelly Efstathiou started performing together at a local church eight years ago and describe their music as "too country for contemporary Christian but it's too faith-based for mainstream country; we're really inspirational country."

Now the duo, Cori and Kelly, have been nominated for Modern Country's "Duo of the Year" and Duo/Group Video of the Year with "Take Me Back to Church."

The Josie Network, LLC is hosting the 5th annual Josie Music Awards. They say Cori and Kelly were chosen out of more than 20,000 nomination submissions and suggestions across several genres. The Josie Music Awards is the largest award show for independent artists and will be held on September 21st.
