Jason Isbell and Sheryl Crow began a co-headlining tour in St. Augustine, Fla. on June 9. The pair took time off during their two-night run at The St. Augustine Amphitheatre to “wrestle gators” at St. Augustine Alligator Farm.

“Me and @sherylcrow gently wrestled gators today @staugalligatorfarm thanks for taking the big one Sheryl I was scared,” Isbell captioned his post on Instagram.

The two remain on the road together throughout the week. On Monday, they’ll be at Koka Booth Stadium in Cary, N.C. On Wednesday, they’ll perform at CMAC in Canandaigua, N.Y.
