* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode ‘[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E13SimpleWays Simple Ways]]’, famous travel writer Trenderhoof, on whom Rarity has a crush, comes to town to see the ‘small town chic’, but [[LoveTriangle becomes enamoured with Applejack]] and her rustic lifestyle (or, rather, with his own image of what rustic lifestyle is like), while [[AllLoveIsUnrequited Applejack sees him as a nuisance]]. Near the end of the episode Rarity, who has been preparing the Ponyville Days Festival and trying to show Trenderhoof that she is rustic too, finally decides to change the theme of the festival shortly before it’s due to ‘[[TitleDrop Simple Ways]]’, a ridiculous caricature of the rustic lifestyle, in a drastic attempt to win over his affection. Fortunately, Applejack sets her straight, both Rarity and Trenderhoof acknowledge their mistakes, and Rarity manages, through a lot of effort, to pull off the festival using its original small town theme.

* One of Creator/HenrikIbsen's early plays, ''Theatre/StJohnsEve'', is based on this trope, with an urban lady moving to the countryside with her daughter, trying to steal the farm out of the hands of the true inheritor, her step daughter. This conflict is lampshaded throughout the play, showing just how different the mentalities were.

* The Roman Republic often had a romantic view of the rural past, and one of the {{folk hero}}es of the early republic was {{Cincinnatus}}, who was elected dictator at a time of crisis, and called to duty while plowing. He reluctantly set his oxes in the barn, took up the reigns of government, solved the problem at hand and beat down the invaders. And after that, he humbly resigned his duties, went back to his farm to finish the plowing. Cincinnatus became an example of virtue for centuries (enough that he is still the TropeNamer of this plot device on this very Wiki).

The attitude itself can be found as far back as ThomasJefferson, who maintained that America ought to be a primarily agrarian nation for democracy to survive (he lived before urbanization became a widespread phenomenon, so it's a bit more excusable).

* CountryMusic in general will have a strong preference for the country. Any song where a country boy moves to the city will almost always have that boy back in the country (or at least wishing he was) by song's end. A good example is the Music/WaylonJennings song "Where Corn Don't Grow" (CoveredUp by Travis Tritt later).
