Nancy did a duet with her father that reached #1 in the U.S. and UK. This song got awarded a Grammy for record of the year. The same year Nancy traveled to Vietnam to preform for the U.S. troops.

Sinatra remained with her original label until 1970. In 1971 she signed with RCA resulting in 3 albums. By the mid 70's she slowed down her musical activity and ceased acting to focus on being a wife and mother.
