Jim & Colleen Gallaghers

Jim and Colleen Gallagher have been a part of the Country Days community for many years. They are co-founders of “Route 67,” a band that has spent almost twenty years on the stages at Country Days.

Jim Gallagher grew up in Farmington, on Seventh Street. He is a 1986 graduate of Farmington High School. He began his work career at Wal-Mart, when the store was in the building that now houses Farmington Tractor Supply. He went to the Farmington supercenter upon completion, then to Walmart in Desoto. Jim has remained an employee of the Wal-Mart stores for almost 38 years. Jim began entertaining on the Country Days stages many years ago, playing drums in opening bands for such stars as Ricochet, Shenandoah and Marty Stuart. Jim was also a member of the Plummer Family Country Music Show from 2000 until 2010.

Colleen Kay Gallagher grew up just 12 miles from Farmington in Ste. Genevieve County, and graduated from North County High School in 1984. She performed at the first Country Days in 1982, and continued to return for following years. Colleen moved to Nashville for a short time, before moving back to Missouri, making her home in Knob Lick in 1991, where she made her home for the next several years. Colleen spent many of her years working as a bookkeeper for local businesses, while continuing her career as a singer and bass guitarist. She also worked for the Plummer Family Country Show, where she met Jim. Colleen is currently teaching Reading Intervention at Roosevelt Elementary in Farmington.

Jim and Colleen married in November of 2010, and have made their home in Farmington ever since. They are proud parents of Alex (and wife Hannah) Gallagher of Park Hills, Holly (and husband Waylon) Gonz of Farmington, Jennie Moore of Knob Lick, and grandparents to Addison and Parker Gallagher.

Jim and Colleen founded Route 67 in 2001. This band has been a staple of Country Days since 2009, opening shows for such country greats as Joe Diffie, Aaron Tippin, Mark Wills, Darryl Worley, and many others.

Jim and Colleen are proud to call Farmington home, and are delighted to be Mrs & Mrs. Country Days for 2024!
