Contemporary Christian music (or CCM—and occasionally "inspirational music") is a genre of modern popular music which is
lyrically focused on matters concerned with the Christian faith. Today, the term is typically used to refer to the Nashville,
Tennessee-based pop, rock, and worship Christian music industry. The industry is represented in Billboard Magazine's "Top Chris
tian Albums" and "Hot Christian Songs" charts, and by Radio & Records magazine's Christian AC (Adult Contemporary), Christian CHR (Contemporary Hit Radio), Christian Rock, and Inspirational (INSPO) airplay charts, as well as the iTunes Store's "Christian
& Gospel" genre.
