Sooo everyone remember that video of the boy yodeling in Wal-Mart that went viral last year?! I’ve been heavily invested in what Mason Ramsey has been up to since his life got turned upside down and went on the Ellen Show, performed at the Grand Ole Opry, and even Coachella. Mason is so so so talented (and also hilarious- his naivety at 12 years old + his personality/social media brand KILLS ME!!!) and I saw he was coming to the Texas Club here in Baton Rouge. I shot the show for Stitched Sound but I also was able to meet his marketing team and snag some shots of him from backstage as well.
When I walked into the green room, Mason was eating lots and lots of beignets (I think he said like 20?) and chugging a Red Bull. I knew immediately that he was your average 12 year old boy- but with almost 2 million followers on Instagram and a microphone. I fell in love with his stage performance (his voice is so spot on) and was able to chat with him for a second after the show. He likes to eat ice cubes and also likes that Baton Rouge has go-carts. I feel like we’d be friends if we were the same age. When I showed him my photos of him on my camera and said goodbye, he gave me a big ole’ hug and it was the sweetest thing. I hope to see great things from him in the future (I’m sure we will) and am so happy with the photos I was able to create.
