A Southern Illinois boy who yodeled a Hank Williams tune in a Walmart store is winning the internet.

Eleven-year-old Mason Ramsey, wearing a red bow tie, cowboy boots and a belt with an oversized buckle, wowed shoppers by yodeling at a Walmart in Harrisburg, in Saline County. He sang Hank Williams' "Lovesick Blues."

Videos of his performance have been viewed more than 1.3 million times on YouTube. There even are dance-mix remixes of his performance.

Mason is from Golconda, in Pope County. In another video, in which he performs Hank Williams' "Hey Good Lookin," he states that he'd like to perform at the Grand Ole Opry.
