Her music incorporates elements of rock, folk, hip hop, country, and pop. She has released seven studio albums, two compilations, a live album, and has contributed to a number of film soundtracks. She has sold more than 17 million albums in the US and over 50 million albums worldwide.  Additionally, Crow has garnered nine Grammy Awards (out of thirty-two nominations) from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.

In addition to her own work, Crow has performed with the Rolling Stones and has sung duets with Michael Jackson, Eric Clapton, Luciano Pavarotti, Willie Nelson, BB King, Tony Bennett, and Sting. She has also performed backing vocals for Tina Turner, Michael Jackson, Don Henley, Stevie Nicks, Belinda Carlisle, and for the Bob Dylan 30th Anniversary celebrating Dylan’s thirty years as a recording artist.

As an actress, Crow has appeared on various television shows including NBC’s 30 Rock, ABC’s GCB and Cougar Town, Disney Channel’s Hannah Montana Forever, and Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear.

In 2010, Crow contributed the original spoken-word track “My Name Is Mwamaroyi” to the Enough Project and Downtown RecordsRaise Hope for Congo compilation. Proceeds from the compilation fund efforts to make the protection and empowerment of Congo’s women a priority, as well as inspire individuals around the world to raise their voice for peace in Congo.

A&M Records released Crow’s seventh studio album, 100 Miles from Memphis, on July 20, 2010. The album has a classic soul vibe and features lead single “Summer Day.”[42] 100 Miles from Memphis (released July 20 on A&M Records), the distance from her hometown to the music mecca, is an ode to her formative memories of music – and one that the label hopes can inspire young music fans to investigate the landscape beyond processed pop and Auto-Tune.[43]

Later that year, she joined Loretta Lynn and country singer Miranda Lambert on an update of Lynn’s song “Coal Miner’s Daughter” for the 2010 album Coal Miner’s Daughter: A Tribute to Loretta Lynn. The song was later performed on the 44th Annual Country Music Awards in November.[44]

On September 20, 2011 it was announced that Crow will write the music and lyrics for Diner, a new musical inspired by the critically acclaimed 1982 film. The show will come to Broadway in the fall of 2012, and will be directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Kathleen Marshall.[45]

On October 11, 2011 William Shatner released the album Seeking Major Tom and she sang the track “Mrs. Major Tom” by electronic music artist K.I.A., released in 2003 on the album Adieu Shinjuku Zulu.

In September 2012, she was featured in a campaign called “30 Songs / 30 Days” to support Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide, a multi-platform media project inspired by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn’s book.[46]

On November 1, 2012, Crow released an original song she called Woman in the White House that was made available for a free download. As the title suggests, the country-flavored tune defends the idea of a woman president, and received mixed reviews from critics that ranged from “sort of patronizing and gender essentialist” to “good-natured and well-intentioned”. The song, praised for its tongue-in-cheek lyrics, became subject to comment for country singer Brad Paisley who characterized the song as being “all in good fun”.[47] The song was later released for digital download on iTunes and a portion of the proceeds were donated to the American Red Cross to aid in the recovery effort in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.[48]

Recently, Crow signed with Warner Music Nashville and completed the recording of her first country record alongside producer Richard Bennet. The album has also gotten production assistance from Brad Paisley and will most likely be released fall of 2013.[47][49] The lead single, “Easy”, was released digitally to iTunes on March 12, 2013.[50]
