Trace Adkins' wife has filed for divorce.

Two weeks after Adkins' first public appearance on the Grand Ole Opry following completion of an alcohol rehabilitation program, his wife Rhonda Adkins filed for papers in Williamson County on Tuesday.

The two have been married for 16 years and have three young daughters.

The filing is the most recent round of bad news in what has been an already tough year for the country singer. In January, he entered a rehab facility following a break in his long-standing sobriety. He checked out of the facility about two weeks later to be at his dying father's bedside. After his father died, the country star completed his stay in the Florida treatment center.

On March 11, Trace Adkins made a surprise appearance on stage at the Grand Ole Opry to perform "Kiss You All Over" with country group Exile. It was his first public appearance since enterring rehab in January.

Adkins, a winner of NBC's reality TV show "All-Star Celebrity Apprentice," is known for hits including "You're Gonna Miss This" and "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk." His last album "Love Will..." was released in 2013.

The Grand Ole Opry member has been open about his previous struggles with alcoholism.

The family's bad news isn't confined to 2014. In June of 2011, the Adkins' Brentwood home burned and was considered a total loss.
