Scoot Over, Walmart Boy: These Old Kacey Musgraves Yodeling Videos Are Gold
"Walmart Boy" just found his yodeling partner in Kacey Musgraves.
Riding the storm that 11-year-old Mason Ramsey has ignited with his viral Walmart singing video, country's "Butterflies" singer shared some video of her own. Musgraves posted two throwback videos of herself on Instagram in which she's putting her best pipes forward. The first finds the young Texas girl at a rodeo in full western attire, belting out a series of yodels that would have Roy Rogers shaking in his boots.
In the second clip, Musgraves is a teenager and appears to be performing at a talent show, dressed in an all-red ensemble and strumming a mandolin as she demonstrates yodeling talent beyond her young years.
"Where you at, Walmart boy?!" she calls out in the caption, tagging Ramsey at his official @lilhankwilliams Instagram handle. (It's not clear if Musgraves is looking for a yodel-off or a collaboration, but consider us present.)
Walmart Boy Has Inspired a Yodeling Revolution
Since the video of Ramsey yodeling to Hank Williams' "Lovesick Blues" was made public, it's been seen by millions. Walmart Boy is the new hot meme and the latest internet craze — he's even been put into a surprisingly good EDM remix.
Though only 11 years old, Ramsey has been working on his talent for years. He was instilled with an admiration for Williams after listening to his old records in his grandfather's garage. He's since learned to imitate the iconic country star and has mastered the craft so well, he's referred to as "Little Hank" in his hometown of Harrisburg, Ill.
Walmart Boy even appeared on Ellen this week, and next, he's going to the Opry.
