It's a double whammy for CCM fans. People mature spiritually, which can change preferences.

I'm in my 50's and haven't stopped exploring new music. On the contrary, my taste in music has become more diverse over time.

This statement tracks. I really used to like Newsboys but man, It's the same thing over and over. Like the songwriters are stuck in 4th grade. They had some growth right up until Going Public and Take me to Your Leader- then I guess they figured out the formula. Now, give me a good lyric with some crafty riffs and *I'm a fan for life. Stryper music has gotten better, but the lyrics don't show a lot of growth. As for seeking out new music- it's not as easy as it used to be in some ways. But, it is really easy in other ways. Radio isn't a great place to discover new artists, but streaming is wide open. Unfortunately that means sifting through a lot of things that I don't respond to.
