I got caught in this scene quite by accident several years ago working with two AOR bands of the genre. Although it's lyrics are positve- the buisiness side of the CCM scene is the same as the Secular industry. It's based on Top sellers, and Cash.

Most of the Christian labels (Sparrow/Word) are owned by the Multi-national /Megacorps, and really have little interest in the Christian faith other than exploiting it for every dime they can get.

If I sound bitter, I am sorry. But Twila Paris can sing "Praise" all she likes. She is held under the same rules of the corporate machine as any other "Diva" you want to mention. You can have CCM. I'll still listen to White Heart, Sweet Comfort Band, Fireworks (All great- and excellent!) and others, but I will not look at these bands through Rose colored glasses anymore....
