(NASHVILLE) - Trace Adkins' marriage is coming to an end. 

The country star's wife Rhonda is seeking a divorce, claiming "irreconcilable differences." She's requesting the judge award her primary custody of their children along with child support and alimony, and have Adkins pay her legal fees. Trace and Rhonda have three daughters together -- 16-year-old MacKenzie, 12-year-old Brianna, and nine-year-old Trinity. Trace and Rhonda have been married for nearly 17 years. They tied the knot in May 1997. It was the second marriage for Adkins.
