    If you make your one pedal a clean boost, it'll let you leave your guitar's volume knob turned all the way up. Guitars like that.

    I did heaps of country rock and rockabilly gigs just with a Tele- Deluxe reverb amp- Joyo Sweet Baby(if a slightly dirtier sound was required) and a EXH Memory Toy for delay, and covered most of the generic sounds of those genres. A very simple setup.

    not talking about the cure amigo. I love the Louvin Bros, but in 40 years of playing out in actual country bars and roadhouses, it would be the rare time that one of their tunes would be called or played....

    and if you ever played in a four piece, and you played waylon, willie, hank, hank jr, hag, buck etc...

    shoot, you are a cure fan... it don't matter.

    Seems like OP amp had gain, reverb and trem covered.
    The Freeze would add some subtle spatial versatility without distracting from the array of amp sounds available.
    Another choice I might have suggested would be a looper with reverse capability (for Fresell-type reverse looping effects).

    Plus one on the delay. I am a big Strymon fan, so I would suggest the Deco. Absolutely killer pedal.

    Another vote for a squisher. Boss CS-3 is my favorite.

    Then it's definitely a delay. There are lots of good ones....Strymon El Capistan (I love mine), Catalinbread Belle Epoch (would have bought one if I hadn't got the El Capistan); I'd suggest to look for a second-hand T-Rex Reptile 1. Version - no tap-tempo, but you can dial in nice or wobbly modulation on its own. I got that on my session-board.
    If you're more on a tight budget, I'd go with a simple Boss delay.

    Hey, Golfnut -

    Have you picked one yet? Narrowed it down? Flummoxed?

    Now I know this pedal has some notoriety but.......have you considered the Boss Metal Zone? or perhaps 7?
