Joshua Scott Jones, otherwise known as the male half of country duo Steel Magnolia, announced Thursday on the group’s website that he’s entering rehab to battle an alcohol and substance abuse problem.

Last week, Meghan Linsey — the other half of Steel Magnolia and Jones’ fiancee — said Jones would be gone for awhile and that she’d be doing their shows solo, although she didn’t reveal the reasons behind it. Now that her partner has gone public, she may be able to be more forthcoming.

In the meantime, fans have taken to the band’s Facebook page to show their support.

Here’s Jones’ statement:

To all of our fans and to those whom it may concern,

God has been on my heart to announce and make public that I have entered a rehabilitation and treatment facility to address issues related to alcohol and substance abuse. Hundreds of thousands of people in the world struggle with these battles daily, therefore I am sincerely grateful for all thoughts and prayers at this very poignant juncture in my life and career. I would also like to thank my family, friends, record label and management team for being so supportive and having an active hand in my recovery process.”
