Mason Ramsey, the 11-year-old online yodeling sensation who racked up thousands of views and became an internet celebrity after singing a cover of Hank Williams’ “Lovesick Blues” in the air mattress aisle of an Illinois Walmart, performed for thousands more this weekend at the 2018 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California. Ramsey took the festival stage with DJ Whethan to sing the song that made him famous. Naturally, he was wearing a cowboy hat and shitkickers.

The Coachella appearance is just the latest stop for the Ramsey publicity train, which pulled out of the station at speed when the video of him singing blew up. The 11-year-old, who lives with his grandparents and has been singing since he could talk, now has close to 200,000 followers on Twitter and closer to one million on Instagram. Before taking the stage in front of the festival folk, he’d already performed “Lovesick Blues” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. After playing on the show, he was informed that he’d won a $15,000 scholarship from Walmart.
