He’s all grown up! After Mason Ramsey was propelled into the spotlight, the young star took over the music industry with songs of his own.
In March 2018, the young star went viral after a video of him yodeling Hank Williams‘ song “Lovesick Blues” at a Walmart took the internet by storm. He quickly stole the hearts of fans everywhere, and then went on to appear on numerous talk shows, walk the red carpet at a bunch of awards shows, release his own music, make a ton of celebrity friends and get this — he even hit the stage to perform at Coachella!
“I’m surprised I could even do that,” he shared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in April 2018. “Because there’s a bunch of people that can’t do that.”
While chatting with Billboard in September 2019, Mason declared that social media “is literally what my career is living off of right now.” But that being said, he had huge plans for his career — which have since started to come true. One thing he wanted to stay the same, though, was his country music roots.
“It’s really important to me because a lot of my family is traditionally country. “I wouldn’t want to change from what I know,” Mason also told Billboard. “I want to do things my way.”
He’s since released two EPs — Famous in July 2018 and Twang in July 2019. While it appears he’s taken a break from music as of now, the talented teen did appear in a 2020 Burger King commercial and even performed at the 2020 Grammy Awards after writing a verse for Lil Nas X‘s song “Old Town Road.”
“So, I woke up, I got my clothes on, I ran out the door as fast I could, into the car, drove all the way there,” Mason recalled to Billboard in January 2020 about his collaboration with the rapper. “And then, we wrote a verse and then we recorded it and then that’s pretty much what happened.”
Mason has accomplished so much since he rose to fame, and J-14 is breaking it all down. Scroll through our gallery to find out what The Walmart Boy is up to now!
