Answer 1

Well, Christian music mostly began when God created people.

I mean, in The Bible, they sang praises to God.

I'd say that's music.

Answer 2

The history of chanting at worship ceremonies goes back before history was written. Chanting was part of religious observances of religions of all kinds from all over the world. Chanting at Christian services dates back to around 300 in many parts of Europe and the 'Gregorian Chant' dates to the time of Pope St Gregory the Great (540-604). The period known as the 'Silver Age of Chant' (900-1300) added music to chanting which spread throughout Europe and the different types of music of the different regions becoming the hymns we're familiar with today. When Christianity moved to the new world, once again the music evolved, separated from European musical influence. The biggest contribution to Christian music as we know it was the 'Negro Spirituals" which was one form of intellectual expression not forbidden to the slaves. They added variety, fervor, and new sounds to the old hymns. I didn't see it in the histories, but I can also hear the strong influence of the hill and country folk of the last century. Now in the twenty first century, Christian music is still evolving and will continue to do so.

Contemporary Christian music (CCM or inspirational music) is a genre of modern popular music which is lyrically focused on matters concerned with the Christian faith.

Yes, in fact it is. All music is Christian; it just matters on who and how you sing it. All music genres have a bad history, (especially rap/urban music) and some people just won't accept it as Holy music. But God has created all music for Him, but man has changed it and used it in their own evil ways.

Christian music is a branch of the music industry which includes many genres of music. For hundreds of years, Christians have been writing music in all types of genres with a Christian message. Generally, Christian music can exist in any type or genre. There is Christian Country, Christian Hip-Hop (TobyMac) and Rap (LeCrae, Grits), Christian Pop (Matthew West), Christian Rock (Kutless), Christian Soft Rock (Casting Crowns), Christian Hard Rock (Skillet), Christian Metal (Demon Hunter), Christian Alternative and many more. As well as a ton more artists/bands!

For the most part, Christians listen to Christian music. Non-Christians have been known to listen to Christian rock and metal.

Christian music has been around for as long as music has been around. (One could say, it's been around longer than Christians have...because technically that's true.) Songs giving praise or petitions to God have been recorded in history for thousands and thousands of years- think Moses. What "came about" was mainstream/secular music. Though, perhaps, more accurately, the distinction between Christian and mainstream music is what 'came about'. Throughout history, at times when the Church ruled as a government, and most people attended church (if not actually practice their faith) the distinction wasn't as it is now. Certainly, there were types of music that were not accepted in the church, but were enjoyed elsewhere. Christian music was the norm and secular the exception. It seems these two have switched- secular music is everywhere, while "Christian music" is only listened to by christians (basically).It may be easier to ask when specific genres of christian music came about (gospel, worship, rock, reggae, heavy metal, hip hop etc etc etc).
