NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Hank Cochran, a songwriter who composed a string of country hits including "Make the World Go Away" for Eddy Arnold, has died. He was 74.
Publicist Martha E. Moore said Cochran died Thursday morning at his home in Hendersonville north of Nashville.
He had been in declining health in recent years and suffered an aortic aneurysm in March.
He co-wrote the following No. 1 hits: Patsy Cline's "I Fall to Pieces"; George Strait's "Ocean Front Property"; and "Set 'em Up Joe" by Vern Gosdin.
He also wrote the No. 1 hits: "Don't You Ever Get Tired of Hurting Me" by Ronnie Milsap; "He's Got You" by Cline and Loretta Lynn; "I Want to Go With You" by Arnold; and "That's All That Matters to Me" by Mickey Gilley.
