Eleven-year-old Mason Ramsey has been getting a lot of attention since a video of him yodeling recently went viral. At the end of last month, he performed Hank Williams Sr.'s "Lovesick Blues" for a crowd gathered inside a Walmart in Harrisburg, Illinois and someone posted the video online (which has since been picked up by ViralHog):
This week, Mason was invited to be a guest on Ellen. The midwestern boy showed up in fancy western duds and when Ellen asked why he performs in a Walmart, he explained, "Well, because, that's the only store we've got." The Harrisburg store where he performed in the video is about 30 miles from his hometown of Golconda.
He also told Ellen that he dreamed of performing at the Grand Ole Opry someday.
After performing a song on the show, Ellen told him that she snagged him a place on the Grand Ole Opry stage this Saturday. Needless to say, he was thrilled.
It looks like he goes on right after Ricky Skaggs:
Oh yeah, people from all over have been recreating Mason's viral moment:
