– Mason Ramsey, the 11-year-old singer from Indiana, released two new tracks, "The Way I See It" and Hank Williams Sr.'s "Jambalaya (On The Bayou)."
"The Way I See It" was written by veteran songwriters Rodney Clawson, Josh Kear and Corey Crowder.
This is the second time that Ramsey covered Williams. He recently recorded "Lovesick Blues," which jump started Ramsey's career after he was discovered performing it in an aisle of his local Walmart in Harrisburg, Ill.
Ramsey also released "Famous," penned by Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line, Sarah Buxton, Canaan Smith and Crowder. The song has sold more than 300,000 copies.
Ramsey has played CMA Fest, iHeartCountry Festival, Stagecoach, and Coachella. He will support Florida Georgia Line during its five-nights-only residency in Las Vegas on Dec. 1, 5, 7, 8 and 11.
