Ideas for country and bluegrass for a music mix?

I need to fill a memory stick full of music for an elderly gentleman of eclectic taste. I have no idea what to put on it. Help!

The longer story: he is a dear family friend in his early 70s who is a doctor and he plays these memory sticks on the stereo in his waiting room. He rotates the sticks every day and when I have been there, I have noted a few themes:
- There is one with many Klezmer songs and possibly some opera
- There is one with oldies like Elvis and the Beach Boys
- There is one with twinkly yoga-ish instrumental music
- Nothing with pop music or anything like that but some country-ish stuff
- Nothing with offensive or upsetting lyrics, he is a psychiatrist
I think he might like old-fashioned country music and maybe some folk-ish bluegrass type of stuff. He wants an eclectic mix. He wants me to get him as many songs as I can.
My first thought was the soundtrack for O Brother Where Art Thou. But I am not really familiar with this genre and don't have a clue what else to look for. Ideas?
