The kid who became an overnight internet sensation for yodeling in the middle of an Illinois Walmart is reportedly getting ready to bring down the house at this year’s Coachella music festival, according to TMZ sources.
Eleven-year-old Mason Ramsey was caught on video giving patrons a rendition of Hank Williams’ “Lovesick Blues” a few weeks back, which has since received millions of views and shares. He’s gone on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” and singlehandedly put “Lovesick Blues” back at the number two spot on Billboard’s LyricFind US ranking.
And according to TMZ sources close to Ramsey, he may be slotted for an appearance at Coachella this month.
Popular rapper Post Malone is reportedly trying to get the Ramsey to yodel on stage as a part of his Coachella performance, which would be electric, no doubt.
But Post Malone isn’t the only person trying to book him for a performance. TMZ claims other lesser know Coachella acts are trying to book Ramsey. Unfortunately for everyone performing this Saturday, he’s already booked for a concert at the Grand Ole Opry. But Coachella lasts for two weekends so — as long as his schedule stays clear for the next seven days — we could have some more viral yodeling videos in our future.
No word on how much Ramsey’s being paid for these performances — if at all — but you can bet he probably comes at a high price. Not bad for an 11-year-old.
