He appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and performed at live concerts, including the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

Now, Ramsey released the first single off his deal, called Famous, which is available on all streaming services.

If I'm gonna be famous for somethin'/I wanna be famous for lovin' you/If I'm gonna be known around the world/I wanna because of you, girl, Ramsey sings in his new song.

Ramsey said hes excited about what this will mean for his career, according to Complex.

Id been to Nashville a few times before, but never thought something like this would happen. Its a dream to sign with Atlantic and Big Loud. I loved recording Famous and cant wait for everyone to hear it.

Atlantic Records VP of A&R Ian Cripps said Ramseys talent is unmatched and he has star power.

We understood them and their goals and simply fell in love with their story and vision, he said.
