all bridge pickup all the time, neck pup not necessary, you can just pull it right out of there.
This. Pretty much any rock amp with rock settings will do. Even with the few older-school tunes mixed in, 99% of your audience is going to have modern pop/bro-country as their reference point and the older tunes will be a novelty for them, so dialing in the modern sounds with a clean patch for the older stuff will be fine.Isn't modern country the new "rock". Seriously though, whatever tones you're using already should translate.
