Does anyone recognize the fiddle tune used in this Ford commercial?

http://youtu.be/CTfJzqyTB9w

I hear these Ford ads on the radio a lot and I really like that tune and would love to be able to play it. If it was written specifically for the Ford ads, I suppose I can figure it out by ear. But if it's an actual fiddle tune, it will be a lot easier if I can find the sheet music. Just need to know the name.

Does it sound familiar to anyone?

I could barely hear it because of the talking going on and I think I heard more of a piano jingle rather than fiddle. What I did hear isn't familiar to me, maybe a tune special for "Ford".  dunno

I searched the web as best as I could for anything relating to this tune but I found nothing. Usually you can find an artist but no such luck. It was likely composed just for Ford.

Yeah, that's my guess, too, Ken and John. It was worth a try to ask, though. Thanks for helping me try to figure it out.

I found this, Diane, but I don't see that particular commercial listed, nor the song.
