EXCLUSIVE

Brandon Church — the late brother of country star Eric Church — died as a result of chronic alcoholism … TMZ has learned.

According to the autopsy report obtained by TMZ … Brandon had a clinical history of alcohol withdrawal-induced seizure disorder — meaning he had a history of binge drinking and trying to quit … which would trigger a seizure.

As we reported … Brandon suffered 2 seizures when he died last June in Granite Falls, North Carolina. The second seizure — suffered while he was on his way to the hospital — appears to have sent him into cardiac arrest.

According to the autopsy, the alcohol abuse also caused a thickening of his heart, coronary artery disease and liver damage.

Brandon, who had written a handful of songs over the years with his famous brother, was 36.
