I play similar fills with my left hand.
I accent on my snare with my left hand and I hit my rack tom in between the accents as I ride with the right hand.
Reinforce the left hand hits with your bass drum if you want to.
That's how I would do it.

When playing this kind of music always take the simple approach.
That's the first thing that I learned when I began to play Country.

So, let's see, at least 20 characters?
(Takes a deep breath...) I'm gonna disagree slightly with Fox here. I hear this fill beginning with the 32nds on the 1, not on the "e". And I think an alternating sticking ought to be used for this kind of fill, in order to add power and clarity to those quick 32nds.

That's a good sticking option. The first note could easily be a flam actually I hear those two notes a lot less clearer than the 32nds that come on later. So it could be a sort of flam accent sticking for the first 3 notes, then left, and that's the first beat, then it goes on like my original transcription.
