Thanks for visiting my site. My name is Doug Figgs and I am a Western music singer/songwriter from Lemitar, NM. My musical influences include Country, Western, and Southern Rock. I can perform solo, as a duo with Mariam Funke, or as a trio (Doug Figgs, Jim Jones and Mariam) as "The Cowboy Way". I have 4 CDs currently available at the "Store" on this website. They are "Some of my favorites..." , a collection of some of my favorite cover songs, "All Because of You", a collection of Western/Americana songs mostly written or co-written by me, and "Partners", a very well received album with 3 award winning songs. I am very proud to announce that my newest CD "A Cowboy Like Me" is now available on my web site!
