The following is a list of Christian country artists.

Christian country music, sometimes marketed as Country Gospel or Inspirational Country', is country music that is written to express either personal or a communal belief regarding Christian life, as well as (in terms of the varying music styles) to give a Christian alternative to mainstream secular music. It originated as a blend of early mountain music, cowboy music, and the music from the plantations of the Deep South. The Encyclopedia of Contemporary Christian Music (2002) defines CCM as "music that appeals to self-identified fans of contemporary Christian music on account of a perceived connection to what they regard as Christianity".[1] Based on this definition, this list includes artists that work in the Christian music industry as well as artists in the general market.
