Two easy country music questions:
1) What is the name of the genre/subgenre of country music playing in the background of this clip
from a TV show?
2) What artists/albums are there of this type of country music?

Yes, I know this is batshit simple, but I've read descriptions of country subgenres (cowboy, honky-tonk, bluegrass, new country, etc.), and I can't mentally match the text descriptions with the music.
I'm not looking for country music that pushes any boundaries or opens up new territory, nor for originators. I was raised in Texas, but my family was from the north, so we didn't listen to country at home, and neither did any of my friends. However, you'd hear it occasionally in stores/bars/offices/whathaveyou. Now I live in Japan, and I've got some nostalgia going. I'd like to listen to some plain ole country of this style, like what I imagine one would hear on a random country station. So I'm looking for good but typical country music, not historically important or cutting edge stuff.
(I tried googling the few lyrics I could hear, but I didn't get a single hit, so I suspect the music was written specifically for the show to avoid royalty payment needs. Also, the TV show's closing credits don't mention the artist, nor do discussions online about the music in the show)
