Sporting a cowboy hat, large belt buckle and clutching a guitar (complete with a personalized strap with his name on it) Mason Ramsey appeared on The Ellen (DeGeneres) show Tuesday and performed the song that made him famous: Hank Williams' "Lovesick Blues".

We all remember the kid yodeling at Walmart that the internet fell in love with, and thank God he's back.

When asked by DeGeneres why he chose Walmart, the 11-year-old's answer made the daytime host crack up. But first, DeGeneres wanted to hear how Ramsey enjoyed trip to Los Angeles, as his Ellen visit marked his first time on an airplane.

The video of a little boy yodeling in a Walmart store has become so popular that even Ellen DeGeneres has seen it.

The meme features 11-year-old Mason Ramsey, decked out in a cowboy belt buckle, studded boots and a red bowtie, serenading shoppers at a Walmart in southern IL.

An 11-year-old Southern Illinois boy will perform at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville this weekend after a video of him yodeling at a Walmart went viral.

The overjoyed kid is well on his way to carving up a career out of his country singing, but even without DeGeneres' wonderful gesture, he's already made great strides.

Walmart has also given him a $15,000 scholarship.

But he's now graduated from the aisles of Walmart to the stage of one of TV's most popular daytime shows.
