Superstar Shania Twain beat off competition from her countrymen to take four gongs at Monday's (8SEP03) CANADIAN COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS in Calgary, Alberta.

Twain took home prizes for top female artist, top album and top-selling album for UP!, and top video for I'M GONNA GETCHA GOOD!

For the fourth year, the sultry singer's labelmate Terri Clark won the fan's choice category. Clark also won top single for I JUST WANNA BE MAD.

Newcomer Aaron Lines also had a big night, clinching two major honours: the Rising Star Award and the prize for top male artist. Emerson Drive won for top group, while SEAN HOGAN was named top roots artist.

Also during the show, Twain inducted veteran SYLVIA TYSON into the CANADIAN COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION HALL OF FAME.
