Top 10 News Stories of 2011: Rascal Flatts’ Gary LeVox Pens Song for Caylee Anthony
It seemed that just about everyone was deeply touched in 2011 by the sad story of Caylee Anthony, who was murdered in 2008 when she was just under 3-years-old. The tragedy was not lost on Rascal Flatts' Gary LeVox, who helped pen a song for the little girl with his writing peers Cledus T Judd and Jimmy Yeary earlier this year.
'She's Going Places' melted the hearts of literally millions of people, country music fans and beyond, and even reached the ears of Caylee Anthony's maternal grandparents, who wanted to give a big "thank you" to LeVox and Co. for putting their unique songwriting mark on the life of their granddaughter.
LeVox and Judd had co-written a similar tune called 'He's Going Places' a few years earlier, so when the Caylee Anthony news surfaced, Judd told Taste of Country that he reached out to the Rascal Flatts star about changing the lyrics to reflect it. “He said, ‘Absolutely, have at it,’" Judd explained. "And he spit out a few lines of it."
