Any recommendations for medium difficulty ( no easy or beginning band level) country or western genre music for community band?

Thank you. We played Tennessee Salute last spring. It was a fun number. Anyone others come to mind to anyone? Our music director asked if I could find something in the country genre for our rural Northern California audience.

When we did this one, our tympani player played a washboard solo on Rocky Top.
EyeDoc, you're a bass trombone player, right? No third trombone part on this one.

Here is another.

After this my limited memory is totally exhausted.

"All Aboard"

https://www.jwpepper.com/All-Aboard/10015584.item#/

Trombone feature based on "This Train Is Bound For Glory".

Snippets of other Railroad tunes are buried in the piece as well.

This actually requires a good second trombone.

Thanks JohnL for remembering. I am working on the bass sound.  If all goes well, and the fires calm down, I will join the trombone Christmas on the 16th on bass 1. As the bass in our community band, I have been pushing for Action Brass y Sadler. Our main director is a tuba player so I may have success 😁
The All Aboard sounds fun for the section and the audience.
