NASHVILLE, TENN. (August 6, 2018) – On a hot streak of several major television appearances, Big Loud Records and Atlantic Records’ rising star MASON RAMSEY continues to deliver must-see performances of fan-favorite tunes off his celebrated FAMOUS EP.
Yesterday (8/5), he took the stage for the first-time during the two-hour 2018 iHeartCountry Festival special on FOX to sing his career-launching rendition of Hank Williams, Sr.’s “Lovesick Blues.” “It’s safe to say he won over every single heart in the house,” praised iHeartRadio. Featuring today’s hottest Country stars, the footage was captured live in May from the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, TX, for the broadcast.

Fresh on the heels of his debut on ABC’s Good Morning America (7/26) with “Famous,” Ramsey headed to New York City’s Times Square to take “the TRL studio by storm with a pitch-perfect performance” (MTV) of his lead single last Friday (8/3). Bringing his Golconda, IL, roots to the city, he showcased his “serious vocal talents” (MTV), in addition to sitting down with veteran host Sway Calloway to chat about his fast-track to stardom and reveal his dream collaboration with Country’s own Blake Shelton. The iconic pop culture show also premiered his official “Lovesick Blues” (Hank Williams, Sr.) music video filmed inside Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum.
“Showing off even more of his skills, the yodeling phenomenon” (Billboard) stopped by Billboard during his trek to the Big Apple last week to celebrate the 60th anniversary of their Hot 100 chart. Beginning with the 1960s, watch as he pays tribute to smash-hits through the decades and sneaks in a bit of “Famous” too.
Ramsey will next appear for his first-ever Canadian television performance at the 2018 CCMA Awards (9/9), plus bring songs from his FAMOUS EP to upcoming music festivals including Hey Stamford! Food Festival in Stamford, CT (8/26); Freedom Fest at the Lake in Kenner, LA (9/2); and FGL Fest in Indianapolis, IN (9/8). He will then rejoin the MULTI-PLATINUM duo for FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE LIVE FROM LAS VEGAS, opening each night inside Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Tickets are on-sale now for this limited residency on December 1, 5, 7, 8, and 11.
