Walmart Threw a Huge Concert for the Yodeling Boy That Everyone Loves

Mason Ramsey, known as the viral "Walmart yodeling kid", flew to Los Angeles to make his first national television appearance at The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

GalaticFusion hopped on the bandwagon rather quickly and chose to upload his "EDM Remix" of the Yodeling Walmart Kid along with a free download. He's been singing Williams' songs since he was just three years old. As Ramsey tells DeGeneres, he actually sings in Walmart "all the time", seeing as it is the only store they have in his rural hometown of Harrisburg, Ill.

"If the good Lord's willing and the creeks don't rise, I'll see you all again next time", he shouted at the end, referencing a country song made popular by Johnny Cash. She offered him a chance to perform at the Grand Ole Opry and $15,000 to help pay for college (two life goals that Ramsey mentioned to Ellen at the beginning of her show), and his surprised reaction is priceless. The overwhelming reception has also propelled the track into Spotify's Global Viral 50 chart and Williams into the ranks of The Weeknd and Cardi B.

The Golconda, Illinois, native paid a visit to Ellen Tuesday (April 10), performing his rendition of Hank Williams Sr.'s "Lovesick Blues" and talking with Ellen DeGeneres about his Walmart performances.

But he's now graduated from the aisles of Walmart to the stage of one of TV's most popular daytime shows.
