Mason Ramsey, the ‘Yodel Kid,’ Will Release an Album This Summer

Called 'Famous,' the new work includes country covers, as well as a single co-written by Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard

Mason Ramsey, better known as the 11-year-old viral “Yodel Kid,” is taking full advantage of his newfound stardom. His debut album will be dropping on the world on July 20 this year.

The album, titled “Famous,” will include six songs. They’ll be a mix of new and old songs — but one tune fans of Ramsey will recognize is Hank Williams’ “Lovesick Blues,” the song Ramsey sang in a Walmart in a recent video that has been viewed tens of millions of times.

After the video, Ramsey flew out to do “The Ellen Show” in Los Angeles, and he’s appeared at the Grande Ole Opry and Coachella as well. He will next be opening for Florida Georgia Line at their Las Vegas residency.

The single from his new album, “Famous,” was actually co-written by Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard.

Before his Walmart video went viral, Ramsey was singing at nursing homes and fairs.

His grandfather reportedly taught him to sing when he was only three years old.
