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.
