WATCH: Kid Yodeler Mason Ramsey Performs on 'The Ellen Show' and Learns His Biggest Dream Will Come True
This clip is YouTube's #1 on trending videos.
11-year-old Mason Ramsey and his yodel-ay-hee chops have taken the internet by storm. So much, in fact, that he burst through our laptop and mobile screens to be invited to Los Angeles to appear on The Ellen Show this week.
Now, the young entertainer has stolen our hearts even more, as we saw his personality come to life in conversation with Ellen DeGeneres. His first time on an airplane, Ramsey reported "...it was very good. But driving with the driver letting me go in the back of the limo that was awesome! But then I tried some sparkling water and ehhh it wasn't so good." The small-town Illinois boy also has some thoughts on LA, quipping, "Yeah, [I like it], but I'm a country boy and out in the old country all we do is bale straws of hay. And next thing you know you're sitting under a tree taking a nap with your hat down and a weed in your mouth."
Spoiler alert: After Ramsey's performance, DeGeneres surprises Ramsey with the news that he will be fulfilling his dream of performing at the Grand Ole Opry on Saturday night and that he will also play at a Walmart concert that will be streamed on the company's Facebook page. Additionally, DeGeneres announced that Walmart will be giving him a $15,000 college scholarship.
Watch his interview and performance below.
