Crow has received two CMA nominations thus far in her career. The first was in 2003 for Vocal Event of the Year for her duet with Kid Rock on "Picture." Her second nomination came in 2006 for Musical Event of the Year for her performance with Brooks & Dunn and Vince Gill on "Building Bridges." Crow's current album is 100 Miles from Memphis.

Lambert, the top nominee for 2010 with nine nominations, also achieved the most nominations of any female artist in CMA Awards history.

She has won a total of eight CMA Awards, including three wins as Female Vocalist (1967, 1972, 1973) and four consecutive wins with duet partner Conway Twitty for Vocal Duo of the Year (1972-1975).
