Casey Anthony's Parents Reach Out to Rascal Flatts

7/25/2011 4:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Casey Anthony's parents are trying to arrange a meet-and-greet with the band Rascal Flatts -- all to give the lead singer one big thank you for writing an emotional tribute to Caylee Anthony.

0722-anthonys-rascal-flats-ex2

TMZ has learned ... George and Cindy Anthony reached out to the band's reps this week after hearing the song, "She's Going Places" -- which lead singer Gary LeVox (right) co-wrote with another singer named Cledus T. Judd.

But the band isn't exactly in a hurry to respond -- a rep for Rascal Flatts tells us the band is mulling it over and has yet to decide if they'll meet up with the Anthonys.

If you haven't heard the song, the lyrics are pretty heartrending -- "She was just a baby, barely 2 years old / A story that shouldn’t have to be told" -- so if you're in the mood to tear up, take a listen.

Please Rascal Flatts, do not meet with the family that helped a killer go free. They probably want a free trip somewhere to meet you, use it as a vacation, stay in a hotel that none of us could ever afford, and have another 15 minutes of fame. Your song is beautiful, don't dirty it by meeting with people that lied on the witness stand in order to free a killer. It worked. Now she is free to make her millions from ridding herself of her own child, throwing her family under the bus, and they in return lied for her. The whole family is sick, there is something seriously wrong with all of them, and I don't mean just grief. They want to make money off of a poor deceased little angel. You know I walked down the aisle on my wedding day to your music, and I would be heartbroken to hear that you have met with people that are profiting off of the death of their grandchild, whether it be money, free trips, public speaking, etc... I just couldn't stand it.

A nice tribute to little Caylee. Unfortunately, she will be forgotten in six months and it will be on to the next major story or headline. A lot of people are angry Casey did not get convicted. However, there was not enough evidence to convict her beyond a reasonable doubt. Thats the way our justice system works. Whats really sad is if you look at pics and vidoes prior to Caylee being murdered she seemed to be a loved and cared for child even by her monster mother. No one will ever know what really happened to this Caylee. Except for maybe the Anthony's and Casey's attorney Jose Baez.

Stop littering up a forum for a 2 year old murdered girl with your by posting bull**** sites to sell stuff, it's disrespectful and disgraceful. Pander your wares some place else. This little angel deserves all the love and attention our words and prayers we can post. Bless you Caylee Love<3

Ah so sad, such a tragic situation, Makes me want to cuddle my little baby and protect him from the monsters out there, How a mother could do harm to her child and then walk free is unspeakable. I dont think the band should meet the parents

OH HOW I WISH THESE COMMENTS WERE READ BY OR TO THE
PEOPLE THEY ARE ABOUT. DEAR JURORS: Lets see. A child is left
in the care of her MOTHER. Child dies. MOTHER fails to report
child missing MUCH LESS THE DEATH OF THE CHILD. MOTHER lies
to everyone when asked whereabouts of child to mislead
everyone into thinking child is ok. Grandparents find car that was last seen driven by the MOTHER. It stank like death confirmed by grandparents and others. Grandparents report child missing 31 days after last seeing child WITH MOTHER. MOTHER of child still lies as to whereabouts even claiming to have talked to her that day. MOTHER STILL REFUSES TO REPORT CHILD MISSING.
MOTHER NEVER DID EVEN TO THIS DAY. Child is found dead and
yet MOTHER will not tell anyone as to why or how child died or
even WHY SHE NO LONGER HAD CHILD IN HER CARE. In no way
did you hold the MOTHER accountable. You made the satement
that all was "speculation". It's called CIR****TANTIAL. Are
you so naive and lack worldly experance that you can not see. There is no man more blind than one who WILL not see. A cause of death was NEVER needed as the COURT WOULD NEVER ALLOWED
THE CASE TO GO TO TRIAL. CIR****TANTIAL evidence is as
compelling as fact and is allowed in trial and you can convict on it. That's why you heard it. It wasn't for entertainment. If you have no common sence then you should never have served on the jury. Life is not just about book learning... life is about THINKING. Yes you were expected to put the dots together. We can't change anything but as you look back and think about it. Have you ever put a puzzle together and find several pieces are missing yet you can still know what the picture is? Did you fail to look at the whole puzzle before saying "I can't make out what this is". YOU HELD NO ONE ACCOUNTABLE NOT EVEN FOR FORGETTING THAT CHILD WAS IN HER CARE. YOU DID NOT HAVE TO KNOW THE CAUSE OF DEATH and THERE WAS ONLY ONE CHARGE THAT
CARRIED THE DEATH PENALTY. That is why CIR****TANTIAL
evidence is allowed in a trial. I wish no harm to you other than for every day you wake, someone stops you and ask "WHY?". WHY?

I think writing the song was capitalizing on the tragedy. Now its too late and the fact that the parents want to meet with them is negative publicity. This happens when you get greedy.

Who they need to turn to is Brabo Gator for his song "MASCARA RAIN" **CAYLEE ANTHONY TRIBUTE!!!**. Too much truth for that lying family, though.

I hope the band refuses to meet with these monsters that lied to get Caylee's killer acquitted & freed. Right now they're in the Bahamas visiting their offshore account celebrating their good fortune, they don't have to work anymore thanks to Caylee's murder and all the free money they’re getting as a result. Disgusting.

It will be one of the worst public relations disasters if Rascal Flatts meets with these people. I think a majority of fans would be turned off if they did.

Rascal Flatts - Please don't acknowledge the Anthony's. They are only using this/you for a publicity shot to suggest they are innocent. If they were sincere, they would have mailed you a "thank you" card and left it at that.

They are professional liars, so don't get sucked into their game.

Rascal Flatts, please, please, please do not "grant" these people a meet with you. The song is beautiful. To those who excuse you of cashing in -- ignore them, they are ignorant. George and Sindy Anthony, supposed loving grandparents are also cashing in and looking to expand. Please I implore you; you would most definitely do a disservice to this lovely song, that you wrote for a beautiful little princess girl (gone too soon) by meeting with the people who sought to free her killer -- so that she may now live with impunity. I hope you will deny them.
