Casey Anthony’s Parents Want to Say ‘Thank You’ to Rascal Flatts’ Gary LeVox
The parents of recently acquitted murder suspect Casey Anthony want to say "thank you" for the touching tribute to their 2-year-old granddaughter, Caylee. According to TMZ, George and Cindy Anthony heard the song 'She's Going Places' -- co-written by Rascal Flatts singer Gary LeVox -- and reached out to the band's representation. As of now the band hasn't responded, but the rep says the trio is considering the appointment.
George Anthony was a memorable witness during the trial of Casey Anthony, so it's understandable why LeVox and his bandmates would hesitant to arrange a meet and greet. Levox co-wrote the song with Cledus T. Judd, who told Taste of Country the two had written a similar song called 'He's Going Places' a few years ago. "So I called Gary and asked him if he’d mind if I re-wrote the song in memory of Caylee. He said, 'Absolutely, have at it,' and he spit out a few lines of it," Judd says. Nashville artist Shane Hines sings the touching lyrics.
'She's Going Places' is available at iTunes, and all proceeds from the song will go to Protect.org, a charity that protects children from dangerous people close to them. It's estimated that 90 percent of child abuse victims are hurt by people they know, often family members.
