At just 15-years-old, Mason Ramsey (a.k.a. Lil Hank Williams) is already making a comeback. In 2018, fans discovered Ramsey through a viral video of the 11-year-old yodeling “Lovesick Blues” by Hank Williams at a Walmart in Harrisburg, Illinois.
His career quickly exploded, and he appeared on national television shows, made his Grand Ole Opry debut, and was even signed to a major record label, His first single, “Famous,” was released in 2018. Since then, he has released two EPs, most recently Twang, in 2019.
Ramsey emerged from a social media break last week, sharing on Instagram: “Sorry I’ve been so quiet on social media lately. I’ve been living my life and took a step back from everything for a bit. I’m 15 now and a lot has changed since that day in Walmart. Hang tight because I’ve got big plans for 2022.”
Once again, Ramsey is going viral, but this time, it’s on TikTok, where he’s sharing behind-the-scenes videos of his new gig: working at his hometown Subway.
In reply to people asking “What happened to the yodel kid?,” Mason posted a video from his job at Subway, saying “I’ve been holding all the doors, holding your hand, getting off of work as fast as I can.” From two-stepping behind the counter to making subs, Ramsey shares his new hustle with his song “Before I Knew It” from his 2019 EP Twang playing in the background.
I’ve been livin’ my best life..how have y’all been?!
One fan was quick to observe, “went from Mason Ramsey to Gordon Ramsay,” referencing the celebrity chef. Mason replied with a video showing him preparing subs, saying, “I make the tastiest subs in town. Try me Gordon Ramsay.”
Reply to @uhhjanie I make the tastiest subs in town. Try me @Gordon Ramsay 🤠
He has since shared several videos from his new position at Subway, including clips of him dancing, making sub sandwiches and pizza as well as cleaning up the restaurant area. He says he is “going for employee of the month.”
Going for employee of the month🤞
While there’s no word yet on if Ramsey will be releasing new music any time soon, it appears that he’ll be serving up some fun and food in the meantime.
