Thanks for visiting my site. My name is Doug Figgs and I am a Western 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". We can also perform as a dance band with the addition of drummer Teresa Armijo and Bass player Clifton Murray. I have 3 CDs currently available at the "Store" on this website. They are "Some of my favorites..." , a collection of some of my favorite cover songs, and "All Because of You", a collection of Western/Americana songs mostly written or co-written by me. I am very proud to announce that my newest CD "Partners" is now available on my web site!
"Western Writers of America"
Wow! My song "Socios" was named 2015 WMA song of the year! Thanks to co-writers Mariam Funke, and Ethan Smith.

My song "Socios" won the Academy of Western Artists "Will Rogers Award" for 2014 best Western song!
Just found out my buddy Todd Carter and I won the Western Writers of America 2015 Spur Award for best Western song with our co-write "Charlie and Evangeline"!
