It seems nowadays that internet sensations can come from absolutely nowhere. Falling into this category comes Mason Ramsey, more commonly referred to as the yodeling boy, or Little Hank, who found his fame in a Harrisburg, Illinois Walmart. Ever since a video of Ramsey singing the infamous “Lovesick Blues” by Hank Williams sparked fire, the yodeling boy has gotten the attention from a substantial amount of celebrities. In the weeks since Ramsey’s fame has skyrocketed, the 11-year-old has landed a spot on Ellen, has been the center of attention in the meme world, and put on an excellent performance at Coachella.

“Lil Hank” as he is also referred to, also recently performed a few covers outside of the Walmart that sparked his fame in the first place. The yodeling boy walked out to a roaring crowd on Wednesday afternoon, performing alongside DJ Suede the Remix God.

“If the good Lord’s willing and the creeks don’t rise, I’ll see you all again next time,” Ramsey shouted at the end of his concert, referencing a country song made popular by Johnny Cash.

Now, the world waits to see what’s next from the emerging star.
