The most common meaning is people (friends) from the same country (nation).
Due to the multiple meanings of both country and fellows, it could take other meanings in certain situations. Country could be a nation, it could be the countryside i.e. non-urban regions, or it could be the music style Country and Western. Fellows could mean friends, but also just a group of persons. There is for example a Country and Western band called Country Fellows.
There appears to be a band by this name; in that context it probably means "fellows from the country", i.e. men or friends from the countryside. This probably refers to Country music.
Other than that, I think this word is only used by non-native speakers, as a variation of "fellow countrymen": I do not believe this to be an actual native English word or expression. I have only found it on foreign websites whose English was of questionable quality.
As adjective, fellow means "being of the same kind, group, occupation, society, or locality".
Fellows can be used as noun to mean "who is of the same kind, group, occupation, society or locality".
[Example taken from the New Oxford American Dictionary.]
People from the same country or community are called country fellows.
This is similar to class fellows for people that attended the same school.
