It's 2018, and the yodeling Wal-Mart kid just released a single on Atlantic

Mason Ramsey is 11 years old and has already performed at Coachella. Listen to "Famous" now.


This is better than the Cash Me Outside Girl, right?

Less than a year after signing Danielle Bregoli (who became famous after this appearance on Dr. Phil), Atlantic Records has signed yet another viral internet star.

Mason Ramsey — an 11-year-old who was meme-d into information super highway stardom and then thrust onto the Coachella Stage after his yodeling rendition of Hank Williams’ “Lovesick Blues” at a Kentucky Walmart when viral last month — has signed a joint deal between Atlantic and Big Loud. 

“I’d been to Nashville a few times before, but never thought something like this would happen," Ramsey said in a statement. "It’s a dream to sign with Atlantic and Big Loud. I loved recording ‘Famous’ and can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”

Listen to Ramsey's single below.
