Eleven-year-old Mason Ramsey is known in his local community of Golconda, Illinois, as "Little Hank".

A video of Ramsey's performance has racked up over 1.6 million views on YouTube since it was first uploaded on March 26, but other videos, including EDM and trap remixes, put Walmart Yodeling Boy's views in the tens of millions.

Ramsey told DeGeneres that he's performed at Walmart "like 50,000 times", but looked as happy as can be to bring his "Lovesick Blues" cover to the Ellen stage.

In the video, Mason Ramsey, clad in jeans, white shirt and red bow tie, belts out a pitch-perfect rendition of the heart-breaking country song in the middle of Walmart.

The number of streams of "Lovesick Blues" - a song that is almost 70 years old - by the country music pioneer has increased by a whopping 2452% over a period of two weeks (26 March to 9 April). He went on to share that his biggest dreams are to perform at the Grand Opry and attend college when he grows up.

On Tuesday, the internet's favorite yodeling kid flew out for an appearance on The Ellen Show, reprising his performance of the country tune in his now-signature yodeling warble and sharing some tidbits about his daily life and aspirations.

Who IS This Yodeling Kid?! Others who would cut it over the ensuing decades included Red Kirk, Sonny James, Sonny Curtis, Hank impersonator Jim Owen all of whom had Billboard entries with it, though none almost as successful as the Williams record.
