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.

AND how will they pay to go see the band. Will the band have to fly them in? give them tickets? the anthony's are a terrible group of people and hopefully rascal flatts will not meet with the grandmother, who perjuried herself on the stand, to protect the murderer of little caylee anthony.
would have to boycott rascal flatts...

George and Cindi did not kill their granddaughter their daughter did and everyone is acting like they did!!!!! I feel nothing but compassion for them. They never wanted to be famous for having a granddaughter murdered!!!! They were just living their lives when this all happened!! That family will never be the same!! George and Cindi did nothing wrong. All they did was love their daughter and granddaughter and look where that got them!!!!

I hope the band doe NOt meet with these people. The song was special for Caylee only. I have no respect for grandpa that drove that death smelling car home and didn't immediately call 911. And Gramma lying on the stand to protect her lying GUILTY daughter is just too much... And who the hell waits 31 day to report report the missing child? I am a gramma, this is ridiculous.

CC - THE ORIGINAL    

FIRST...IF any of you had the sense, instead of ignorance and sitting on your dumb asses, and searched to ACTUALLY find out about this tribute before shooting off your mouths with idiotic comments...you'd find that ALL the proceeds are going to the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION TO PROTECT CHILDREN!!!

AND, FYI...Nancy Grace was NOT the first to bring this senseless murder of a baby girl not even 2 1/2 years old to the attention of the media. It started in FLORIDA in the media, where it happened...AND, mainly because the lying slut of a mother lied and hampered the investigation for 31 days before anyone knew she was "missing"...if ANY of you paid ANY attention to the evidence, after 31 days and then being under water, for a good part of it, in Florida weather, this childs body was skeletonized and eaten by animals within the first week. After 31 days, that sleazy biotch KNEW the evidence would all be gone.

NEXT, guess you rock dwellers fail to remember her defense team....Bozo Baez and Linda Baden and others....AND, her parents...were on ALL the major national media shows...Today Show, Good Morning America, Larry King, etc Even sold pics of Caylee to ABC for $200,000 which went to the murderers defense!!! So don't EVEN bother to blame this all on Nancy Grace. Just in case you don't know...her show HAS brought justice to many child murderes AND helped return several children by getting their stories and faces out there.

Wow. It wasn't bad enough that Caylee was tortured and murdered, but now The Rascal Flats had to rape what's left of her body. I can't believe you morons fall for this bull****. You are what is wrong with the world. Go read a book please and figure out what reality is.

The band gives away the proceeds of this song, but they garner hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of fans via the publicity, which they later convert into dollars. You are insane to believe the Rascal Flats care about Caylee. They are using her to garner attention. Do you know how many kids die every year? Where were the rascal flats then? They just happen to write an incredibly ****ty song about the most popular and attractive dead white girl. What heroes! (sarcasm)

If you need any more proof that the rascal flats are sell out media whores, go watch their last awful song with Justin Bieber. Rascal Flats are professional child rapers. Next they will do a song about sex slaves in saudi arabia i bet.

Such a beautiful song by a well-loved band should be left as it was intended - to heal the wound left by a horrible crime left unpunished. Any association with the Anthonys would just add salt to the wound.

I cant even put into words about the level of emoticons I have felt in this tragedy. I have taken every opportunity to not only telling my boys but also showing how much Mommy loves them. I didnt know Caylee but as we all can see she was loved by many.

What a beautiful tribute to little Caylee...I have been a fan of Rascal Flatts for years...they are wonderful group of people and a awesome band..I'm telling you all, please don't be so quick to judge them...They do a ton of charity work for children, and I'm sure they are not intending to profit off of this song. Misuided anger will get us nowhere..

Please note that Rascal Flatts is donating all the proceeds to http://www.protect.org/ NOT to the Scamthonys.

Please do not meet up with them and give them any legitimacy.

I listened to the song and I did not like it.

I am a huge Rascal Flatts fan.

The title, She is going places is a very interesting choice indeed.
