This Yodeling Walmart Kid Remix Already Has 7 Million Views on YouTube

Ramsey - an 11-year-old who has become affectionately known as "Walmart yodel boy" and the "yodeling kid " - walked out on stage to a cheering crowd on Wednesday afternoon, before showing off his dance moves and performing a few songs, including Hank Williams' "Lovesick Blues".

Miller's sweet, yodelling style would prove a profound influence on future country legends including Williams, Merle Haggard and George Strait, who had a Top 30 hit with "Lovesick Blues" in 1992. It's an experience he enjoyed, especially the private limo, although he wasn't overly fond of sparkling water. She offered him a chance to perform at the Grand Ole Opry and $15,000 to help pay for college (two life goals that Ramsey mentioned to Ellen at the beginning of her show), and his surprised reaction is priceless.

"Yeah, but I'm a country boy", he told DeGeneres when she asked if he liked LA.

Mason told the talk show host that his dream - like most country music stars - is to perform at the Grand Ole Opry. According to a report from Time, streaming replays of "Lovesick Blues" shot up nearly 2,500 percent after Ramsey's video went viral. Ramsey found viral fame after a video of him singing Williams' "Lovesick Blues" in his local Walmart started making the rounds. The record reached number 1 on the charts quickly and then went on to make 11 million copies.
