Help me create the perfect Appalachian playlist

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?

One more hill's as far as I can go

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]

For days you want to be country but also NOT country.

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?

Folk/Bluegrass/Country songs that tell stories?

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]

Old-Timey Music

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?
