I'm looking for songs that are in love with Appalachia, mention places, rivers, Dogwood flowers, etc and are full of that Blue Ridge heartache. Blue grass, country, folk and that ilk. I'm driving along the blue ridge parkway, and want a killer soundtrack.
I already have the Sweetback Sister's Virginia is for Lovers
, Paradise by John Prine
, Tom Wait's Oh Shenandoah
and of course, Wagon Wheel
, on repeat on my playlist. What am I missing?

Namethatsongfilter: Last winter/spring, I heard a bluegrass/country song on the radio. It was about coming home to a loved one. What was it? [more inside]

I am not a habitual listener of bluegrass. However, I really, really
like The Devil Makes Three. Can you recommend additional bands or artists I might like? [more inside]

What are some pokey radio stations that play old country/forgotten 45's/big band/bluegrass/rockabilly from the 1920's-1960's that I can listen to online for free? [more inside]

What is this song I heard today? It's a slow folkish bluegrass song with the lines "Lately I've been moving kind of slowly, one more hill's as far as I can go" as the chorus. [more inside]

I really like the kind of post-bluegrass music exemplified by the Gourds' cover of GIN AND JUICE and the songs of HAYSEED DIXIE. Where can I find more of it?

What a surprise: I'm working on another music mix and would like suggestions. This mix features folk/bluegrass/country songs that tell stories. The less production, the less instrumentation, the more acoustic the better. [more inside]

That high lonesome sound. Any recommendations for old-timey music—string bands, ballads, fiddle music, country blues, even up to orthodox bluegrass? I'll soon be surrounded by vendors
of such things but I don't have much grounding—any really standout groups or recordings I should look for?
