"Kentucky" is one of the state songs (not the "official" state song, mind you -- that's "My Old Kentucky Home"). It was written by Karl Davis of Karl & Harty and has been performed by numerous acts including the Louvin Brothers (whose version I recommend with tremendous bias), the Whitstein Brothers, and the Blue Sky Boys.
"The Kentuckian Song" has also been done by a number of people, but I associate it with Eddy Arnold (simply because his version was the version that I grew up with).
"Kentucky Means Paradise" by Merle Travis (a Kentucky native) is a gem of a song.
Other songs that reference Kentucky:
"Eight More Miles to Louisville" - Grandpa Jones
"Bowling Green" - Everly Brothers
"Blue Kentucky Girl" - Loretta Lynn
"Bus Fare to Kentucky" - Skeeter Davis
"Rose of Old Kentucky" - Bill Monroe
"Kentucky Waltz" - Bill Monroe (although Eddy Arnold does a marvelous version of this song)
"Blue Moon of Kentucky" - Bill Monroe
"My Old Kentucky Home (Turpentine and Dandelion Wine)" - Osborne Brothers (NOT the Stephen Foster song, mind you, but one written by Randy Newman)
"Paradise" - John Prine (and numerous others, but Prine wrote it).
