Twelve-year-old Mason Ramsey, otherwise known as the Yodeling WalMart Kid and Lil’ Hank Williams, released his new single, “Twang” and the music video that goes along with it last Friday (6/15). Ramsey sings about everything his girl loves about him, especially his southern twang.
“She loves me for my twang / Reminds her of a little Hank / When she hears me on the radio / She knows that it’s me by the way I sang”
You can watch the whole video below!
Ramsey gets in trouble at school and is literally dragged to the principal’s office. When Principal Jackson leaves the room, Ramsey takes the mic and sings to his crush over the loudspeaker. Upon hearing the song, she runs out of the room to pull the fire alarm, so the two youngsters can be together.
This song is the follow-up to Ramsey’s six-track, 2018 EP, Famous. Three of the six songs are Hank Williams covers [“Lovesick Blues”, “I Saw the Light” and “Jambalaya (On the Bayou)”] and three are original songs including his first single “Famous” that peaked on the US Hot Country Songs chart at number four.
Ramsey, born and raised in Golconda, Illinois, found the spotlight when the video of him yodeling at WalMart became an internet sensation. In April of 2018, he signed a record deal with Atlantic Records and Nashville-based label Big Loud. Ramsey has supported multi-platinum duo Florida Georgia Line during their Live From Las Vegas residency. After completing his first sold-out headline tour this past spring, Ramsey will hit the road later this year for the fall leg of his headlining “How’s Ur Girl & How’s Ur Family Pt. 2” Tour. New Yorkers can catch Ramsey at the Gramercy Theatre in Manhattan on Thursday, October 10th.
