A Rascal Flatts Song for Caylee Anthony: Sweet or Sick?

I feel sick to my stomach every time I hear anything about Caylee Anthony. The death of a child is not something natural. Add in that her mother, Casey Anthony, was found not guilty of murder, and the whole thing leaves me feeling uneasy.

Poor Caylee Anthony, a life cut too short. She will be remembered.  There is even a song out there about her, by Rascal Flatts.

Gary LeVox of Rascal Flatts teamed up with Cledus T. Judd and Jimmy Yeary to write a song for Caylee, perfomed by Shane Hines. The song, titled “She’s Going Places,” debuted on the Nancy Grace Show.

The song starts out:
“She was just a baby, barely two years old
A story that shouldn’t have to be told
See that little girl with big brown eyes stole our hearts and touched our lives
Now we cry, ’cause we can’t understand.”

And concludes:
“We will sing sweet Caylee’s praises
She’s safe in the arms of God’s good graces
Yes, she’s going places”

I don’t know if I could listen to the song without sobbing. And while part of me thinks it’s sweet to have a song like this in memory of Caylee Anthony, another part of me finds it all a little sick.

What do you think about the Caylee Anthony song?
