You may have heard Mason Ramsey yodeling Hank Williams' "Lovesick Blues" at his local Walmart, The Ellen ShowCoachella, or at the Grand Ole Opry. But you're about to hear a lot more of him. 

Mason, 11, just signed with Atlantic Records and Big Loud, and released his first single, "Famous," with producers Corey Crowder and Joey Moi, Billboard reports. 


"I'd been to Nashville a few times before, but never thought something like this would happen. It's a dream to sign with Atlantic and Big Loud. I loved recording 'Famous' and can't wait for everyone to hear it," Mason said in a statement. 

"He has the talent and emotional ability to really feel a song and sing from his soul," Atlantic Records VP of A&R Ian Cripps added about Mason.

Luckily for us, there's already a lyric video for "Famous," featuring Mason singing in the studio. His lyrics include lines such as "Don't get me wrong, it's pretty cool to be on TV / So all the folks back home can see me / And that I'm living it out / All the things I used to dream about / Yeah it's pretty great / Singing on a stage / Proud 'cause there ain't an empty seat in the place."

But then Mason adorably addresses a girl: "But girl, ever since I met you / I got a whole new perspective / If I'm gonna be famous for something / I wanna be famous for loving you."

All the while, he's rocking a simple white button-down, a red bow-tie, and his guitar. 

Mason's song perfectly showcases his beautiful voice, and we can't wait to see all that this kid's career has in store for him.
