First recorded in 1922, “Lovesick Blues” is climbing in popularity on Spotify. The version of the song by Hank Williams recorded in 1949 is sitting at No. 22 on the Spotify’s Global Viral 50 chart.
So what is causing this resurgence of an old favorite?
It’s all because of an 11-year-old-boy known as the “Walmart Yodeling Boy.” Mason Ramsey was videotaped recently at his hometown Walmart, and it went viral.
He has even appeared on The Ellen Show.
Mason will be performing at the Grand Ole Opry soon.
