Check out Carbon Leaf, a Richmond, VA band with a lot of albums out. The last couple are more Americana/roots in sound, but previous albums have different sounds.
You might like the Indian Summer and Nothing Rhymes With Woman albums.

This or several other streaming places like I Heart Radio where you can listen to some great stations/channels around the world. Plenty of great music out there that small town and even small city radio canít/donít cover.

Try George Stebbins, William Bradbury and Fanny Crosby. Much of their instrumentals can be heard on "Abiding Radio."

I haven't seen Tyler Childers or Valerie June mentioned yet...else I missed it...

If you have Sirius XM radio check out channel 14 (acoustic versions of songs) and 60 ("Outlaw Country")...you get a real hodgepodge there...maybe something will stand out...

Enjoy the hunt!

There is a recent thread about streaming apps people use which could carry some suggestions.

I use Spotify; the free desktop version which doesn't shuffle like the mobile app versions do. I put up with the ads, or use the amp's remote to mute the sound (it appears there are little apps that do this automatically so ads are still being served as far as Spotify and their income model are concerned).
I like the playlist/artist radio functions, as the feature to keep playing comparable music once you reach the end of a playlist (with that feature you have the possibility to indicate songs you *don't* like, not with the radio feature).

The AI behind that is limited though, so I like to listen to actual radio stations and be surprised. WWOZ is one station, Blues and Roots is another that exposes me to "roots" music from across the globe.

And youtube often serves up interesting new names I wasn't looking for and is largely responsible for my current, renewed interest in non-classical music. That's how I discovered Darrell Scott (because I got curious about the music used in the Justified series) and quite recently, Sarah Rogo and Sierra Ferrell.

It's got some great music on it!
Fantastic resource

I second the Staves. Once I stumbled on their cover of Springsteenís Iím on Fire, Iíve spent a lot of time listening to them.

Hereís a link to a full concert. https://youtu.be/fXF5beIL080

I also very highly recommend The Lone Bellow. Great songs and vocals.
I took this video at a show in 2017. After rocking with their full band, they unplugged and went to the front of the stage for the last two songs. Pure acoustic. Check out some of the full band stuff too. https://youtu.be/nsXWJBiEa_4

Jason Isbell is one of the best songwriting talents to come along in a while...Great guitar player and singer too. Honestly, he doesn't have a bad song. Check out "Alabama Pines", "Cover Me Up", "Travelling Alone", Something More Than Free", "Outfit", "Decoration Day", "If It Takes a Lifetime", If We Were Vampires".....

Brandi Carlisle is finally getting the recognition she deserves.

Buddy and Julie Miller are Americana royalty. Check out "Water When the Well is Dry".

Turnpike Troubadours are a fantastic band. Check out "Good Lord Lori".

Blackberry Smoke is a Southern Rock/Americana band and also a killer acoustic band when they put down the electric instruments. Charlie Starr is one of my favorite songwriters these days. Check out the acoustic version of "Ain't Much Left of Me" and "I Ain't Got the Blues Anymore". They have a great collection of original songs and are finally developing a big following after years of touring.

Sean! I remember that station well. "The Mountain"I loved for the reasons you mentioned. And yes, miss it. Interesting responses.

Rather than mention any specific artists (there are some good ones mentioned already), I'd recommend a streaming music subscription. There are free versions with ads, or you can spend $10-15/month for individual or family accounts w/o ads. I love Spotify's interface and tailored playlists, based on your listening, which can turn you onto new music. There are thousands of playlists out there (and millions of songs in their catalog), so it becomes easy to find musical inspiration! Apple, Tidal, Amazon Music are other considerations.

Ryan Adams is fantastic, especially his early stuff and his records as Ryan Adams and the Cardinals. "Gold" would be a good place to start.

Should have posted this one. No one sounds better with just a geetar and harmonica. YMMV.
