You create a playlist...!?!?! (favorite/new songs)?

I am looking for new music...I am going to award 10 points to the person that puts together the playlist I like best, using the following rules:

The artist OR song must be:

A new artist or song OR

An up-and-coming artist OR

A not widely popular song or artist OR

1 of your favorite of all time songs

Genres to steer clear of:

Hard metal and hard rock

Oldies

Screaming

really Long songs

Music that I like (in no particular order):

Most Country

Some bluegrass and folk

Most Hip hop

Some Rap and r&B

Dance music

some techno

Some alternative (sister hazel, nickleback, creed, etc)

I enjoy guitar/acostic type songs

I enjoy songs with great lyrics

I enjoy songs with a great beat

What new and different can you introduce me to????

...please make sure that the song is not too obscure as I may wish to preview it on a file sharing site if I cannot find demos online, unless you have a clip to share.

Update:

A list of 5 to 10 artist/songs

Update 2:

I have a very large music collection that is varies largely......Remember that I am looking for a playlist- a list of different artists and different songs (5-10), not one specific person or genre, just new randomness I can add to my ipod- I will check out some of the artists already added!!!

    Allow me to introduce you... to a guy named John Mayer. You may have heard of him through his overrated songs like "Waiting on the World to Change" or "Daughters". But if you go deeper, you will find music that meets a lot of your criteria:

    - Up-and-coming

    - A lot of genres... blues, pop, rock, he's all over the place, but always great.

    - Guitar/Acoustic

    - Always a nice beat

    - Amazingly poetic lyrics.

    I'll give you a taste of some of my favorite songs of his. But John Mayer sounds perfect for you.
