You would ask.  I was hoping you'd forgotten.  So, I went home last week and put on the station.  The song popped up in no time.  Then I tried to figure out why I had it going through my head as being similar.  It wasn't that close.  I was too embarassed to report back.  <hangs head in shame>  Okay, now that I've confessed, I'll go back through pandora and commence listening again as I've forgotten the name of the song.  Again.  I'll report back this time.  Really.

This isn't even close, but it's the song I had in my head last week.  "Barney McCoy" from Ernest Stoneman & Uncle Eck Dunford.  Not sure why I thought it was close.  Now you'll see why I wasn't so quick to write back.

Silas, you might be thinking of Nail That Catfish To A Tree written by Steve Rosen (of the old-time group the Volo Bogtrotters).  It's become an old-time jam session standard.  The A parts of the two tunes sound very much alike.

Steve Rosen plays it in this vid, at the 7:40 minute mark:

I maybe just starting out but I know what I like and I like this very much. Going to take me a lot of practice to get any where near half as good if I am lucky.
