Billy Ray Cyrus wowed fans
over the weekend with an afternoon set in scorching temperatures at Nashville's CMA Fest
. But come Monday, the country singer wasn't retreating indoors. Instead, he decided to amble around the Denver Zoo meeting animals!
"Join me for a stroll through the Denver Zoo. It's amazing here!" he Tweeted
Monday with a photo of a cheetah walking through grass. He shared six more shots of different animals at the zoo, including a pair of elephants, an eagle, and a red-tailed hawk.
"Meet Champ! He's a King Vulture. I bet he loves Elvis!" he said
of one bug bug-eyed bird. We wonder if he charmed him with a few songs off his new album?
