She won international artist of the year and got a second nod with her collaboration with Tim McGraw and Keith Urban, “Highway Don’t Care,” which was named international video of the year.

Swift toured Australia through December 2013 booked by Frontier Touring.

Of local winners, Newcastle singer-songwriter Morgan Evans hit gongs for artist of the year, male of the year and Australian video of the year. A year ago, Evans won the new artist category at the awards.

Other winners included Jasmine Rae for female artist of the year, and The Wolfe Brothers were crowned CMC New Oz Artist of the Year.

It was the biggest year of voting in the history of the awards, CMC said. A 30-minute special premieres on CMC March 31.
