After years of fame as the yodel boy, Mason Ramsey stepped away from the spotlight.
Ramsey rose to prominence in March 2018 after a video of him yodeling Hank Williams’ “Lovesick Blues” at a Walmart went viral. From there, he expanded his empire even further by signing with Big Loud.
Despite his absence since last year, Ramsey regained public attention when his TikTok video for “Before I Knew It” went viral. People wonder where the young singer is now as he approaches his birthday.
Mason Ramsey, who was born on November 16, 2006 in Golconda, Illinois, is about to turn 16 this year. He was raised in a Christian family as the son of John and Karen Ramsey.
In January, he promised his fans that he would return soon with surprises before the end of the year, after taking a break to focus on living his life.
In an Instagram post, he shared a photo of him jet skiing alongside the caption:
“Sorry I’ve been so quiet on social media lately. I’ve been living my life and took a step back from everything for a bit. I’m 15 now and a lot has changed since that day in Walmart. Hang tight because I’ve got big plans for 2022.”
It’s unclear whether it’ll be an album or a tour, but he’s already shared sneak peeks of his upcoming projects on Instagram and YouTube.
Ramsey is currently enrolled in a local high school in Golconda.
Mason Ramsey’s net worth is estimated to be around $1 million by Exact Net Worth in 2022. The sum is considered substantial because the young singer has yet to realize his full potential in the music industry.
His music career contributed significantly to his net worth, while his appearance in the 2019 animated film “The Angry Birds Movie 2,” where he voiced Oliver’s character, contributed little.
The video that launched his career received 25 million views in just a few days. Ramsey’s yodeling video became a viral internet sensation, propelling Hank Williams’ original song to the No. 3 spot on Spotify’s Viral 50 chart in the United States.
Before signing with Atlantic Records and Big Loud, Ellen DeGeneres invited him to her show “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” In 2018, he released his first single, “Famous,” which peaked at No. 62 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States.
