WEST SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -- A young internet sensation, known for his oversized voice, will be taking the stage at the Big E this year.

Fair officials announced that Mason Ramsey will perform on the Court of Honor Stage at 8 p.m. on Saturday, September 28.

Ramsey, 12, rose to fame after a video of him in 2018 - yodeling at a Walmart in Illinois - went viral.

Since then, Ramsey has appeared on television and at music festivals, stood on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry, and recently signed with a major record label.

"Now signed to Atlantic Records and Big Loud Records as the youngest major label Country artist since Billy Gillman, Ramsey’s debut single, “Famous,” is out now. A heartwarming, aspirational anthem which speaks to his quick rise to stardom – but also finds him promising to forever stay a big-hearted country boy," the Big E said in a statement.

The show is free with Big E admission and seating is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

This year's Big E runs from Friday, September 13 through Sunday, September 29.
