The Heritage Foundation of Williamson County, TN announced Amos Gott of AmosEvents as event designer for the 46th annual Heritage Ball to be held at Eastern Flank Battlefield Park on Saturday, Oct. 5, 2019.

Gott is known for planning some of Nashville’s most spectacular events—from celebrity weddings to corporate celebrations to iconic galas like Swan Ball and Ballet Ball. Heritage Foundation CEO, Bari Beasley said, “We have an incredible team at the Heritage Foundation who puts together the Heritage Ball each year. Our Director of the Heritage Ball Kaylen Carrick and Heritage Ball Assistant Gerald Odom are already hard at work. They both have wonderful design taste and spectacular ideas for this year. Amos Gott will work hand-in-hand with both our team and Senator Bill and Tracy Frist. I know that Mr. Gott will also bring something special to the table.”

Gott had been planning events full-time in Nashville for more than eight years when he was invited to design Swan Ball. As the president and chief event architect for AmosEvents, Gott has planned events for more than 1,000 guests and notable corporations all over the country.

“We are honored to have someone with such a wide range of expertise,” said Tracy Frist.“The combination of Amos’ talent and the strong team at the Heritage Foundation allows us to create another wonderful guest experience in a long line of many memorable balls.”

The Heritage Ball is the longest running black-tie affair in Williamson County. Each year, approximately 750 guests gather to support and celebrate the work of the Heritage Foundation and to raise funds for future preservation projects. In addition to a seated dinner and dancing on the historic battlefield, the ball features a cocktail hour, auction and other fundraising opportunities.

Tickets and tables will go on sale in August 2019. Sponsorship opportunities are available now; contact CEO, Bari Beasley at For more information about the Heritage Foundation and additional preservation projects, visit
