Brian BigCountry Conwell




Brian BigCountry Conwell is a retired Army Combat Veteran. He served in the Army for 10 years in 91D and served regularly as the Commander’s Gunner.  

January 6, 2014 changed Conwell’s life forever. He was involved in a car wreck on Fort Riley, which resulted in him losing his left leg above the knee and crushing his right leg. He was sent to Fort Sam Houston to recover from injuries. His right leg has 30 screws for plates and a change rod.

Conwell wanted to be a career soldier. His military career took him across the USA - Fort Lee, Fort Riley, Fort Sam Houston - and all over Europe, including deployments to Iraq.  

Coming back to the civilian world wasn’t an easy journey. A divorce after his injury, his mother dying of cancer and in hospice, learning how to cope without both legs, and learning how to walk again were the catalysts for Conwell to fall into a deep depression. He was anxious, feeling long drawn out times of guilt, not sleeping, and ultimately tried to end his life by his own hand. 

It was at the moment of no return that God showed Brian he has bigger plans for him. Brian BigCountry Conwell changed his focus from being angry at the things he couldn’t change and started to concentrate on and improve the things he could change - his attitude, environment, thought process, sleeping pattern, and being thankful.

Conwell has a giving heart and has always enjoyed helping people all over the world. He was a volunteer firefighter before the military and continues his love of public service as a volunteer firefighter with the Dallas North Carolina Fire Department.

As a Motivational Speaker, Conwell can talk the talk because he’s walked the walk. He shares his story of his trauma and the steps he took to come out a winner, he is a facilitator for positive change, and he shares the intrinsic value of being a contributing member to a community - whether that is the community you live in, a country-wide community, or a global community.

Brian, with or without his  Motivating America Truck can be a Key, Opening, or Closing Speaker and Attraction.

Brian BigCountry Conwell lives to promote positivity and patriotism in

Brian BigCountry Conwell Motivating America Truck


Motivating America was founded by Brian BigCountry Conwell. Regardless of PTSD or losing his leg, Brian never gave up, he felt happy and blessed to be alive. He had lost too many brothers and sisters abroad and here at home.

The goal of the Motivating America Truck is to bring the Pride and Patriotism of America to your event.  It is a huge conversation piece, with a beautiful display of the American Flag and  a bald eagle, the emblem of the nation. The fierce beauty and proud independence of this great bird aptly symbolizes the strength and freedom of America.

The Motivating America Truck can be booked for any event.
