Eric Church, an acclaimed country singer, honored his late brother, Brandon, who passed away last month. Eric is best known for his album, Mr. Misunderstood.


As reported by Wide Open Country, Eric dedicated two special songs - Amazing Grace and Sinners Like Me - to his brother during his performance in Ohio at the annual Country Concert.

Sinner Like Me was co-written by Brandon twelve years ago. He passed away in late June at the age of 36 after being rushed from his home in North Carolina to the hospital during one of the seizures.

His family has since set up a memorial fund for fans to donate, and the money will be used to help others further their education. Read more on our Twitter @amomama_usa.


Fans can donate directly to the fundraiser or contact Brandon's parents via the email section on the website, Brandon Church Memorial Scholarship.

As reported by People, the total amount raised thus far exceeded $28,000. While most of the donations on the page are set to 'undisclosed,' some of the contributions include $100 and $200 payments.

According to Rolling Stone, the 41-year-old Eric's latest album is complete, and he revealed to the audience that the album, as well as the first single, was titled Desperate Man.


The album was produced by Jay Joyce and will soon be released free of charge to members of Eric's fan club before hitting the stores later this year.

Both Eric and Brandon shared a passion for songwriting and the brothers founded the band The Mountain Boys in the late nineties.

Brandon co-wrote several of his brother's hits, including How 'Bout You from Eric's debut album, and Without You Here three years later.

Brandon is survived by his daughter McKenzie, his parents Ben and Rita, as well as his brother Eric, sister Kendra and his in-laws.
