Legendary songwriter Hank Cochran, known for composing such hit songs as "I Fall to Pieces," "The Chair," "A-11," "Don't Touch Me," "I'd Fight the World," and It's Not Love (But It's Not Bad)," is currently in a Nashville hospital recovering from cancer surgery.
Cochran, who will turn 73 next month, underwent successful surgery to have tumors removed from his pancreas and lymph nodes.
"I feel so blessed," Cochran said in a press release through his agent. "The diagnosis was made very early, and the doctors expect me to make a full recovery."
Get-well wishes can be sent to Cochran via his MySpace site.
