The classic "Country Swing" band was Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys. More recently there is Asleep at the Wheel.
About 10 years ago, Chet Atkins and Jethro Burns got jazzy for a while and Chet made an album of jazz standards with Les Paul.

"texas swing" is the link between jazz and country.
Try listening to "Lyle Lovett and his Large Band", or, better yet, an old album by Shelby Lynne called "Temptation". They're both GREAT, and wear well under repeated listenings.

Country/jazz crossover : check out Gary Burton's 'Tennessee Firebird' album on Bear Family label, also, on the same label, 'After The Riot At Newport'. Both are intriguing jazz/country 60s fusions that work very well.

Bill Frisell - Good Dog, Happy Man is a good place to start. A great mix of styles - bluegrass meets jazz meets new age meets blues.

An excellent and underappreciated album, imo. Mostly instrumentals. Very tasteful music.
