Hank Cochran Pen Fund Benefit Set For January 17

Songwriters Rafe Van Hoy, Marla Cannon-Goodman, Dale Dodson, Waylon Payne, Don Sampson and Ronnie Bowman will pay tribute to Hank Cochran and Red Lane at 3rd & Lindsley on Wednesday, Jan. 17 to benefit The Hank Cochran Pen Fund.

Tickets are $10, and doors open at 6 p.m. with the show beginning at 7:30.  The charity focuses its efforts on financially assisting songwriters with cancer. The family of Country Music Hall of Fame member Hank Cochran launched the fund in his honor following his death from Pancreatic cancer in 2010 and it is helmed by Hank’s daughter, Booth.

“Honoring Hank was the inspiration for the Fund, but Red was instrumental in getting us motivated to act,” Booth recalls. “Hank is why we did it; Red is how we did it. They were lifelong friends, and Red was a huge support to our family as Hank fought the disease – and as we grieved. I thought it fitting to honor them both with our first fundraiser of 2018, and I hope a sell-out crowd can help us pay tribute to these two music men.”
