NYCS First Impression: Mason Ramsey Twang EP
At only 12 years old, rising country music star Mason Ramsey has just released his newest EP Twang today, July 26th. Remember the video of Ramsey yodeling in Walmart that went viral over a year ago making him an instant social media sensation and immediately immersing him into the country music industry? Well, over a year later, Twang is strongly believed to mirror the mass success of Famous, his widely received first music release.
The 5-song EP kicks off with its title track, “Twang”, an instant fan favorite, all about loving someone for their country roots. “She likes these boots with these blue jeans, she likes my cowboy hat, but she loves me for my twang”, he sings. The music video for “Twang” (below) was released just over a month ago to YouTube and currently has over 5 million views which should only continue to increase with his new music.
Following “Twang”, other songs on this EP include “Puddle of Love”, “How Could I Not”, “On My Way”, and “Before I Knew It”. The release of this EP could not come at a more perfect time for Ramsey in the wake of his show-stopping feature on the remix of Lil Nas X’s much talked about single “Old Town Road” exceeding over 20 million streams globally and catapulting him to Twitter’s #1 Worldwide Trending Topic.
What many don’t know about Ramsey that is just as impressive as his unrivaled vocals and star power at such a young age is that with the release of Twang, he is credited as a co-writer for the first time, something that is almost unheard of for 12-year-olds.
