Mike MoutouxNew Mexico's Enchanting Cowboy
Welcome and a hearty thanks for dropping by! Please make yourself at home and poke around in here as much as you like. I try to make this a place where you can get to know me, enjoy some cowboy poetry; even order a CD if you’d like. New Mexico is known as the Land of Enchantment; a place that is steeped in fascinating history, stunning landscapes, and charming people you would enjoy knowing. As a poet and songwriter, I try to capture the feelings of those places and the stories of the people I run across living and working here. I’ll put you as close to being in the saddle as words and music will allow. Here at this sort of cyber-campfire, I’ll even give you a new Poem to enjoy now and then. And, I hope you’ll check my Calendar to see if I’ll be performing somewhere near you. I’d really like the chance to sing you a song and perform a poem for you in person.

Mike Moutoux is a cowboy-singer-songwriter from Silver City, New Mexico. Also known as “New Mexico’s Enchanting Cowboy,” he specializes in turning ranch work into cowboy songs and cowboy poetry that give listeners a rare look into the life of a working cowboy.
I’ve helped to pull calves and watched them take their first breath, laid on the ground in the mud and blood doctoring cows, been chased by cows, kicked by cows, fallen off a horse or two, and just generally collected too many fond memories to remember.
His work has taken him high into the Pecos Wilderness in northern New Mexico, to the rolling hills and arroyos of southwest New Mexico, and to the flat mesquite plains near Carlsbad. He has shared stages with all the western music greats and has been a friend to all as a radio DJ, festival emcee, and concert producer.
I want to put everyone in the audience as close to being in the saddle as words and music allow—and at the same time leave ‘em laughing.
He plays a mix of songs, mostly his own, but always includes some classics the audience is sure to recognize. There will be wild rides, cattle drives, and endless big blue skies all wrapped up in poetry and song. With his smooth voice, authentic material, and a wonderful sense of humor, it doesn’t take long for an audience to appreciate what enchanting means: captivating and charming. He has been a friend to many performers as a DJ for KSIL radio in Silver City, the producer of the Cowboy Concert Series, and as a talent wrangler and Master of Ceremonies for the Tyrone Cowboy Poetry and Music Festival. He is a regular on the poetry and music circuit especially in New Mexico, Arizona and Colorado.
My wife and I enjoy the gatherings and meeting up with old friends and making new ones as well. The gatherings are really like family reunions and while I enjoy performing, I like visiting with friends just as much.
