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:
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.
