Sadly, Eric Church's brother passed away in June of 2018. The autopsy report has been released.
Eric Church's younger brother, Brandon, passed away last year on June 29th after suffering from two seizures. We now know they were due to "consequences of chronic alcoholism."
An autopsy revealed more details about the 36-year-old's ailments. "According to his primary care provider, his history includes binge drinking followed shortly thereafter by episodes of seizure activity upon the withdrawal of alcohol use. This is a 36-year-old white male with a known history of alcohol withdrawal-induced seizure disorder (non-traumatic), chronic alcohol use and substance abuse in the past."
There were no illegal substances in Brandon's body at the time of his death, although there were medications used to treat bipolar disorder and depression.
