Anything by Hank Williams, George Jones, Merle Haggard, Gram Parsons, Emmylou Harris. There’s a great web radio station at http://bootliquor.com/ that plays all this stuff mixed with contemporary artists doing stuff worthy of the masters.

‘She’s Actin’ Single (I’m Drinkin’ Doubles)’ should have been on my list too. It’s by the late, great Gary Stewart.
