Trace Was Shot By His Wife Julie Curtis

Trace has had near life-death experience at one point in his life, surviving only by inches. After the divorce with Barbara, he got married to Julie Curtis, an insurance salesperson.

The pair got into a fight over Trace’s drinking habits. On February 21, 1994, Julie told Trace that his drinking habits were getting out of hands, and she was losing her patience. She tried to call her mother, but the singer slapped the phone off the wall.

Finding herself vulnerable, she reached out for 38mm revolver and shot it through his chest. The bullet went right through both his lungs and both ventricles.

They got married on May 11, 1997, at Nashville’s Belle Meade Mansion. The couple then resided at Brentwood, a suburb of Nashville.

The couple was married for almost 17 years when news started to circulate regarding their divorce. Reasons for their divorce had been cited to be “irreconcilable differences”, but it was later confirmed that the causes behind this decision were utterly related to the fling between the country singer and Canadian actress Victoria Pratt.

Adkins met Pratt while shooting a movie The Virginian. The meeting was succeeded by a couple of tweets that eventually came out as an extramarital affair.

The tweets weren't well received at the Adkin’s residence. Rhonda filed a divorce against Trace. In her divorce, she demanded the custody of her daughters and financial support from their father.

What About Trace's Affair With Victoria Pratt

Although it was initially claimed that Trace and Victoria were in a relationship, there is no further proof that their relationship still continues or at least they dated at that point in time.

They have not been seen together ever since his divorce with Rhonda. Any way, we wish him all the best and hope he is happy.
