Hank Cochran Recovering

Legendary songwriter Hank Cochran is on the mend after undergoing cancer surgery.


“The diagnosis was made very early, and the doctors expect me to make a full recovery,” Hank reports. The operation removed cancerous tumors from his pancreas and lymph node. He will likely remain hospitalized for several weeks. Hank, 72, wrote classics like Patsy Cline’s “I Fall to Pieces,” Eddy Arnold’s “Make the World Go Away” and George Strait’s “Ocean Front Property.” Get-well wishes are welcomed at
