Yodelling Walmart Kid Mason Ramsey has taken the world by storm, from the numerous remixes to his performance on The Ellen Show, all thanks to his performance of the late Hank Williams' "Lovesick Blues" in his local Walmart supermarket.

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.

On Wednesday, Walmart rewarded him for his bravery, setting up a stage in the parking lot of that store, drawing a massive crowd to hear him perform in earnest. Afterward, he says, he plans on saving all his money, go to college, and move to Florida, where he'll probably work his way up the business in a motor home.

Ramsey skyrocketed to internet stardom after a Walmart shopper captured him on video, yodelling country music in the aisle of a Walmart in Harrisburg, Illinois.

The overjoyed kid is well on his way to carving up a career out of his country singing, but even without DeGeneres' wonderful gesture, he's already made great strides.

The first commercial recording of it, also from 1922, was by vaudeville performer Elsie Clark. It continues to climb the Spotify Global Viral 50 charts. He mentions that his dream is to perform at the Grand Ole Opry and go to college! Ramsey was overcome with emotion by the incredible news.
