If you like Rosanne Cash you really need to look into The List. One of her best efforts since 7 year ache. She really is a great singer.
I also forgot to mention the instrumental country of Chet Atkins, that man was one of the absolute best guitar players of all time. Roy Clark was also a heck of a picker.
