Walmart Boy Hits Coachella

The last person we ever expected has been tipped to play Coachella

The last person we ever expected has been tipped to play Coachella

The 11-year-old IL native performed on the Sahara stage of the music festival on Friday afternoon, just before DJ Whethan's set.

Mason Ramsey, the internet phenomenon otherwise known as Yodeling Boy, has just taken his talents to the opening weekend of the Coachella festival, because 2018 is truly a weird time to be alive, man.

Mason took the interwebs by storm two weeks ago, when a video of him singing his acapella rendition of Hank Williams' 1948 hit "Lovesick Blues" in the middle of Walmart was uploaded to Twitter. Apparently, he delivered this to an audience that included Justin Bieber, as well as your garden variety of discerning festival-goers.

Ramsey was already booked for the Grand Ole Opry on Saturday thanks to Ellen Degeneres, so it looks like the performance will have to be during Weekend 2, that is if he wants to share the stage with Posty.

Maybe you haven't heard of Mason Ramsey. "Then I tried some sparkling and eh, it wasn't so good". Forget Beyoncé. If you didn't see Walmart Boy, it didn't happen.

"It means a lot to me, I just love it, I just love all my fans", Ramsey said of his supporters, according to ABC affiliate WSIL-TV.

He went on to explain he always sings at Walmart "because that's the only store we've got".
