The name Mason Ramsey might be unfamiliar now, but country fans are sure to hear more from this 10-year-old talent. When a joke tweet went viral, reaching 16.5 million views, the social media universe was introduced to Ramsey, a 10-year-old with an ability to stop Walmart shoppers in their hunt for bargains to take a moment to listen to his incredible yodeling skills.

A longer video of his impromtu performance of two songs can be seen below:
Dressed in his country best, Ramsey taps his foot to keep time while singing Hank Williams Sr.’s “Lovesick Blues” and “Jambalaya (On the Bayou).” The serenade took place in Harrisburg, Ill., where surely shoppers around the store could hear Ramsey thanks to his impeccable clarity and projection.
But this isn’t the first time Ramsey sang in a Walmart. Video of him creating his own stage became locally popular on Facebook earlier this year, leading BEAVER 100.3 FM to invite the boy to their studio to perform a couple of songs while playing his full-sized guitar.
Ramsey has already played the Kentucky Opry, but he hopes to one day play the Grand Ole Opry. With a unique talent for yodeling, he’s probably not too far off from realizing his dream.
