Where Hendersonville, TN
What Legendary Songwriter Hank Cochran Dies
 

Hank Cochran Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member and composer of "I Fall To Pieces," "Make The World Go Away" and numerous other classics passed away Thursday morning in his Hendersonville home. He was 74.

"Last night, Jamey Johnson, Billy Ray Cyrus and Buddy Cannon dropped by to sing songs with Hank," Cochran's publicist said in a release, "and this morning the legendary songwriter was surrounded by family and friends when he passed away at his Hendersonville, Tennessee home."

Cochran was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Association International Hall of Fame in 1974. He was honored by B.M.I. last year for a body of work that also includes "Ocean Front Property," "Don't You Ever Get Tired Of Hurting Me" and "The Chair."

A private memorial for family as well as a public service are currently being planned. In a statement, the Cochran family requests that those wishing to honor Cochran make donations to the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame Foundation.
