In a similar vein to the thread on violin music and movies, have you noticed any good fiddle or violin music in the background or foreground of television or radio advertising?

Not looking to promote any particular companies here but ever since I took up the violin, I can't help but notice violin/fiddle music everywhere now and like some of the tunes.

Here's one for Motel 6 that I like and would love to get the sheet music or at least figure it out by ear. It will probably be by ear as this tune was written for the ad campaign. This video is some fiddle player's rendition, not an official ad.

There's another fiddle tune in a Ford radio ad that I hear a lot, but I couldn't find it on-line.

When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low,

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.
