Walmart Yodel Boy on Ellen DeGeneres Show

The Walmart Yodel Boy Made His Debut on Ellen, and the "Country Boy" Got a Huge Surprise

In case you missed it, the Walmart yodel boy turned into one of the year's most viral memes during the first week of April. While reporting on this little guy's yodelling skills, one of POPSUGAR's editors noted it was only a matter of time before Mason Ramsey made it onto The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and she was right! The 10-year-old yodeller made his debut on Ellen on April 10, and he took the opportunity to show off his charisma and reiterate his love for Hank Williams Sr. and cowboy hats.

Mason told Ellen that he had sung in Walmart many times before his performance in Harrisburg, Illinois, gained traction on Twitter — "50,000 times," in his words. "That's the only store we've got," he added. After talking about his dreams of performing at the Grand Ole Opry and going to college, Mason took to the stage for a live performance of "Lovesick Blues," and he nailed it. The best part? Ellen revealed a couple tear-jerking surprises at the end (doesn't she always?!) that left Mason smiling from ear to ear. Hint: it looks the self-proclaimed "country boy" is going to the Grand Ole Opry sooner than he'd imagined.
