EDITORS’ NOTES

Of all the musical trends that could have been resurrected in 2018, yodeling was probably the least likely. But when 11-year-old Mason Ramsey went viral covering Hank Williams’ 1949 hit “Lovesick Blues” in an Illinois Walmart, a meme was born—and so was a star. Following his debut single, the charming “Famous,” comes this six-track EP, including a full studio rendition of the tune that garnered the Walmart Yodeling Kid his renown, alongside two other classics from Williams’ early-’50s catalog, “Jambalaya (On the Bayou)” and “I Saw the Light.” The two originals—country stomper “The Way I See It” and honky-tonk anthem “Yo Da Lady Who”—prove that Ramsey can do more than merely imitate his idol.

Sounds terrible

I love traditional country music but hearing kids who haven't hit puberty sing this stuff is troubling on the ears. Terrible junk.

Good Job!

I find him to be very capable and I hope he continues to prosper. That said, I don’t think it suits my preference for music. His voice makes me need to grab the headache powders after a bit. And my mind keeps going back and forth between Dolly Parton and Alvin and the Chipmunks. Maybe once his voice drops, he will be a contender.
