Mason Ramsey, the 10-year-old boy who went viral last week for yodeling at a Walmart, appeared on Ellen this week to talk about his viral fame.

Little did he know that host Ellen DeGeneres had her own surprise waiting for him.

DeGeneres told Ramsey that he would be performing at the Grand Ole Opry for a massive concert, which is Ramsey's dream. Ramsey also walked away with a $15,000 scholarship.

Watch Ramsey speak with DeGeneres in this clip.

Ramsey will also perform live at his local Walmart in Harrisburg, Illinois, on Wednesday, April 11, at 4 p.m. CT, according to a recent press release. The event will be streamed on Walmarts Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Ramsey achieved viral fame last week when he started "yodeling" the Hank Williams Sr. classic "Lovesick Blues" in his hometown Walmart. Social media turned the boy into a meme, and others even created some remixes of him singing.

Ramsey told DeGeneres that he chose to perform at that specific Walmart because its the only store weve got. He also said that his grandfather taught him to yodel, even though his grandfather wasnt very good at it.
