REPEAT

TAG
When using the song "Cowboy Blues" by Gary Allan, 
there is a 36 count intro and you will start with the vocals on the word "there." 
Then, there is a 4 count bridge after the 1st and 5th repetitions. 
On these repetitions, repeat the last 4 counts of the dance. 
This means you will do "heel around" 3 times on those repetitions. 
It helps to listen for the instrumental section where he whistles to know the 
second bridge is coming. This dance goes really well to many different swing style songs. 
Use your favorite.
