2000 : 28 "Didn't Leave Nobody But The Baby" by Emmylou Harris & co.

I don't think we should blame the O Brother, Where Art Thou soundtrack for the resurgence in roots music (see: Things White People Like) which saturated coffeehouses and public radio in the early part of the 00s. It's not the soundtrack's fault. It was just trying to make us happy! I love this song and my roots don't include banjos or the Appalachian Mountains. This song just sounded so perfectly fresh and simple when it came out that it was impossible to resist.
