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.

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.

Ignorant fu*king people. The song was for CAYLEE, not you Cindy and George. You couldn't give 2 ****s about Caylee, you'd rather protect your murderer daughter, then give your infant granddaughter justice. No one cares about you, especially Rascal Flats. ******** ignorant.

You people are ridiculous. They will not make any money meeting the band. The band made blood money off writing a song about a dead child but nobody is complaining about that. Hypocrites!

Bleh!    

Unless Rascal contributes the profits to child charity, they are cashing in on blood money too...just in a pious way.

As far as Casey's parents; looks like they do whatever it takes to revamp their image.

Maybe Rascal Flatts could write a song about Cindy, "She lied to protect her slut daughter." Perhaps, one for Casey, "She'd rather be sleeping around than be a mama." This family is dysfunction at it's finest.
If Rascal meets with them, ask them a question, "Is your pool(the one that Caylee supposedly drowned in) still up?" and "Why are you still with George, Cindy if he molested your daughter?" They are all liars.

The Anthonys probably want them to be the Official Band of their new foundation scam. This is a dysfunctional family unit. They need a third party for their triangle. Caylee out. Casey out. Foundation in.

media whore Anthonys
just another reason why Baez was right to not let them visit Casey in prison or let her call them -- they would be selling transcripts on ebay

CC - THE ORIGINAL    

@Matt...

As far as "garner hundreds of thousands(or millions)of fans" through this song...If I'm understanding what you mean by "garner"...like to "acquire"...I think it's a sweet song and a heartfelt tribute to a beautiful little girl whose mother got away with murder....as I said, a "sweet" song...NOT great, just a heartfelt jesture that was written and began playing after the verdict - it could have been sooner, though.

NEVER been a fan of Rascal Flatts...NEVER will. Haven't heard ANY of their songs...NEVER will.

I don't think this is a song they're "hanging their hats on"...so, it may have people give a listen to their other songs...but, don't think it's gonna cause a stampede to their concerts or a run on their CD's.

The Anthonys chose Casey over Caylee. A live Casey meant more to them than a dead Caylee. Perjury and withholding evidence was not honoring Caylee. Honoring Caylee has been left up to strangers who never knew her not her family.

The Anthonys got what they wanted. Casey got off for murdering Caylee. Now the whole family just needs to go away.

Great song to tribute for little Caylee and the perfect band to do it!

Now Korn should make a tribute song to Casey called "Die & Burn in Hell Bitch!"

superman your a worthless piece of **** to say She's going places?? Not really. That girl was most likely doomed from birth. She would have likely turned into a tramp just like her mother. how do you know she would be like her mom for you to say this you must be the biggest piece of **** on this planet

They're getting emotional support from a "rock" band? They need it that badly? Gee mommy and daddy, why would anybody need that kind of support when your little girl was just set free? Never occurred to me to seek emotion support after a victory. I need to start cashing-in on that.

Stay away from them Rascal Flats. They probably want royalties from the song for using Caylees name. They legally put a tradmark on her name a month or so ago so that
no one could make money off her name. Hope you published this song before then or you had better have some good lawyers.
