Randy Houser, wife Jessa file for divorce

By Stephen L. Betts. CREATED May 15, 2014

Randy Houser and his wife Jessa Lee Yantz are divorcing after nearly three years of marriage.

The Country Vibe reports that "after careful consideration and a trial separation [the couple has] made the decision to divorce."  Randy and Jessa were married Sept. 2, 2011, in an intimate private ceremony in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

They have a son together, 2-year-old West Yantz Houser. A rep for the country hitmaker says the couple continues to share joint custody, with Randy spending several days a week with West when he's not on the road touring.

On Wednesday, Randy performed his just-released single, "Like a Cowboy," on "The Late Show with David Letterman." (Watch the clip above.)
