I'm looking for americana music that comes from, or is roughly evocative of, the (romanticized?) rural West and Midwest.

I'm looking for americana music played on stringed instruments (with or without vocals, but preferably without) that comes from, or is roughly evocative of, the (romanticized?) rural West and Midwest: long train rides, endless farmland, blue skies, small cozy towns, miner's songs...
Sorry for the vague description. I've only heard a few songs in the style, so I'm not exactly sure what the common characteristics are. Fretkillr
and the first track on this album
come the closest to what I'm looking for.
Any album suggestions?
