Posted by Webb on 07/21/2008


Songwriting legend Hank Cochran is recovering at a Nashville hospital following surgery performed to remove cancerous tumors from his pancreas and lymph node. "I feel so blessed," says Hank.  "The diagnosis was made very early, and the doctors expect me to make a full recovery." 

Cochran, a "go-to" man for performers like George Strait, Brad Paisley, Ray Price, Mark Chesnutt, and a favorite writer of the late Eddy Arnold and Patsy Cline, is the writer of timeless classics like "I Fall To Pieces," "Make The World Go Away," "Ocean Front Property" and "The Chair."  He is expected to remain in the hospital for several weeks.
