Mason went viral after a video of him yodeling in an Illinois Walmart store was shared on Twitter—and he was quickly propelled into stardom. Just this week, he appeared on Ellen and performed a concert at Walmart that was live-streamed on Facebook. The song that made Mason famous, Hank Williams’ “Lovesick Blues,” also rose to the top of Spotify’s charts.
