Trace Adkins‘ wife Rhonda has filed for divorce.

After nearly 17 years of marriage, Rhonda Adkins filed paperwork in Williamson County, Tenn. on Tuesday afternoon (March 25), according to WSMV-TV in Nashville. She cites irreconcilable differences and asks for primary custody of the couple’s children, as well as child support, alimony and all her legal fees.

Trace and Rhonda married in May 1997, later welcoming three children together. The singer has referred to the former country music record executive as his “secret weapon,” as she’s been an active part of his career and an entertaining way to get to know Adkins behind-the-scenes.

The news is just the latest in an already difficult year for the 52-year-old ‘Just Fishin” hitmaker. In January, he went to rehab to treat his alcoholism after getting into a scuffle with a passenger on a cruise ship. Weeks later, his father died. Earlier this month, Adkins surprised fans at the Grand Ole Opry by taking the stage. A photo with fellow country star Josh Thompson shows a leaner-looking version of the brawny singer and actor.
