Ramsey goes for the "Twang"

Monday, July 22, 2019 – Mason Ramsey will release the "Twang" EP this Friday, Atlantic Records announced today.

The five-song collection is his first in more than one year.

This marks the first time Ramsey is credited as a co-writer.

Ramsey was involved in a just released remix of Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" with Billy Ray Cyrus and Young Thug.

The songs on the EP are:
1. Twang
2. Puddle of Love
3. How Could I Not
4. On My Way
5. Before I Knew It

Ramsey, 12, was discovered singing and yodeling in an aisle of a Wal-Mart in his native Illinois. His "Famous EP" yielded a hit with title track. Ramsey is a disciple of Hank Williams Sr.

He opened for Florida Georgia Line during their Live from Las Vegas residency and labelmate Chris Lane. After completing his first sold-out headline tour this past spring, Ramsey will hit the road for the fall leg of his headlining How's Ur Girl & How's Ur Family Pat. 2 Tour.

When considering Mason Ramsey, one is reminded of the idea that big things come in small packages.

Concert Review: Stapleton shows his traditional roots – Chris Stapleton's All-American Road show feels like a singular mission to rid the genre of the bro country scourge that has plagued it for years. He came out with a blazing one-two punch of "Second One To Know" and "Without Your Love" and packed a stadium sized onslaught into a 9,000-seat arena. He never once veered from his... »»»
Concert Review: Jinks wins over fans, especially new ones – Cody Jinks asked the crowd a bit into his show how many had never seen him before. It seemed like Jinks has made a lot of musical inroads into the public's consciousness because roughly three quarters of the audience raised their hands to show that this was their first time. That probably made Jinks feel pretty darn good about how life has been... »»»
