Well, I really never thought I would ever be writing this, but The Walmart Yodeling Kid has signed his first major record deal. Mason Ramsey first rose to fame with a video of him yodeling in a Walmart, and through the bizarre world of internet memes, he quickly became a cultural phenomenon. So much so that his yodeling performance received a dozen remixes in rapid succession, and resulted in a performance of his song at Coachella during Whethan's set. Yeah the Yodel Kid is living his best life…not it has just gotten better.
Yodel Kid Signs With Atlantic Records
Atlantic Records wasted no time on capturing the star power of Mason Ramsey. While I could go into a pretty lengthy conversation of whether it was necessarily the right thing to do for someone in his position, that is for another article. After signing the deal with Atlantic, Mason dropped his first single to the digital streaming platforms.
It is called ‘Famous' and is a reflection of how his overnight fame has come with some internal consequences. While entirely not dance music – the track is not bad for a country song. It is wild to see how the world works, anyone anywhere can have their moment. Don't be afraid to try your talent out at Walmart, but also don't be surprised if you are arrested shortly after. More power to you Mason.
