Well. Neither Texas or Mississippi are in the Appalachians.
I am sure that the music is most often thought of as being Appalachian is that it is the region that the record companies went looking especially after the Bristol Sessions.
I am sure that there were fiddlers all over the US and Canada.
Re the number of tune titles "Wild Horse at Stony Point" for example has about five different names to my knowledge.
