This year was a banner year for Christian music, which is exploding in popularity. The most wonderful thing about Christian music as a genre is that it does not adhere to one style. All over the world people have been writing faithful tunes in a myriad of styles to suit any musical palate. In case you missed them, we’ve assembled a short list of some of the most important musical stories of the year.
