Brandon Church, the younger brother of country music star Eric Church, has died at the age of 36, his family announced. “It is with great sadness that the Church family confirms that Eric’s brother, Brandon, passed away Friday evening,” a family statement said Tuesday.
Brandon Church’s father, Kenneth Church, said his son had a history of seizures and had one at his home in Granite Falls, North Carolina, Friday, then another as he was being transported to the hospital. The second seizure appeared to have caused him to go into cardiac arrest.
Brandon Church wrote several songs — including “How ‘Bout You” and “Without You Here” — with his 41-year-old brother.
