I believe (and I could be teribly wrong) that they use vibrato pedals. It always sounds like it to me. Keep in mind I don't listen to much country.

Fender Telecaster through a Fender Twin amplifier. As for Brad Paisley, he uses some very expensive amplifiers; mainly Dr. Z amps. He also has at least one Trainwreck amplifier (BIG bucks!).

Yes to Tele and Twin. Classic Country stuff. I see he also uses an AC30 head, presumably for more warmth. But there's just a little light tremolo or rotation in there as well as the usual reverb and his fascination with delays, which gives the sound that extra lift.

Country gear used to be just teles and steels into twins, but it's gotten a lot more diverse than that.

When I play country, I use my normal amp rig. Channel 1 of the CAE is set up to be basically a fender sound. I often stick a compressor out front - I really like the Barber because of the blend control. For gain sounds, I have channel 2 of the CAE set to be sort of a low octane Marshall sound.

Guitar-wise, I use a warmoth tele with an EMG-T set which is there tele set. Mine is wired 18v. It's like regular tele pickups, but hotter and quieter. The only downside is that you can't do the tone control tricks you can do with a regular tele.
