'Walmart Boy' Mason Ramsey Has Yodeled His Way to 'Ellen'

In a day filled with surprises, Ellen announced that Mason would be given the chance to perform at the Grand Ole Opry, a weekly U.S. country concert that has been broadcast since 1925, NME reported. DeGeneres warned him that such a lofty dream would take years to accomplish, but apparently not in the age of the internet.

Forbes has announced that along with Ramsey's rise in popularity, the song from the viral video Lovesick Blues rose by 2452% on Spotify's Global Viral 50 chart.

Walmart livestreamed the concert of the year and Ramsey DID NOT disappoint.

"Well, because that's the only store we've got", Ramsey tells her good-naturedly. Afterward, he says, he plans on saving all his money, go to college, and move to Florida, where he'll probably work his way up the business in a motor home.

Little did he know that host Ellen DeGeneres had her own surprise waiting for him.

DeGeneres presented Ramsey with an invitation to perform at the Grand Ole Opry on Saturday night (April 14), along with a check for $15,000 from Walmart to go toward his college fund.

Holding a guitar bigger than his body, Ramsey flawlessly sang "Lovesick Blues" to the delighted audience.

It's a wonderful comeback for Williams' version of "Lovesick Blues", which the beloved country singer performed to six encores in the Grand Ole Opry in 1949, Washington Post notes.

Now its Ramsey's turn to breathe new life to the song.
