Yodel-Ay-Hee-Ho! Eleven-year-old yodeler and YouTube sensation Mason Ramsey performed on “Ellen” Tuesday, when host Ellen DeGeneres surprised the local Walmart star with a couple of incredible gifts.

Mason told the talk show host that his dream — like most country music stars — is to perform at the Grand Ole Opry. Well, guess where he’s now booked on Saturday?

Yeah, Ellen’s got friends in high places, Garth Brooks-style.

Additionally, the small-town kid who would someday like to go to college (and then Florida, and then move into a mobile home, we think?) was gifted with $15,000 in scholarship money. Damn generous of you, Walmart.

Watch Ramsey perform Hank Williams Sr.’s “Lovesick Blues” via the video above. That’s the same song that first made him (Internet) famous.
