Lisa Marie Presley’s eldest daughter Riley Keough is living out her famous family’s legacy as a 1970s music legend.

Well, at least on screen in the upcoming series Daisy Jones & the Six she is.

The 33-year-old granddaughter of Elvis Presley stars as the eponymous main character in a first-look trailer for the new TV series, adapted from author Taylor Jenkins Reid’s book of the same name.

Amazon Prime dropped a trailer for the highly-anticipated series days after Keough laid to rest her late mother, who died from cardiac arrest at age 54.

In the 10-part miniseries, Keough plays the character of Daisy Jones – a fictional 1970s musician who was a member of one of the most popular bands of all time.

Keough debuts her singing chops, inherited from the King of Rock ‘n Roll himself, in the first trailer for the series.

According to Amazon Studios, the cast recorded 24 original tracks for Daisy Jones & the Six.

The series also boasts an all-star cast with Sam Claflin, Suki Waterhouse and Timothy Olyphant also joining Keough for the mini-series.

Keough has slowly been building up her acting credits as a leading lady in her own right, though all eyes exponentially swivelled in her direction in the wake of the release of Baz Luhrmann‘s Elvis biopic in 2022.

The actress also revealed under tragic circumstances that she secretly became a mother in her eulogy to Lisa Marie at the late star’s Graceland memorial.

“Thank you for showing me love is the only thing that matters in this life. I hope I can love my daughter the way you loved me, the way you loved my brother and my sisters,” the actress said in her letter, which was read out by her husband Ben-Smith Petersen.

“Thank you for giving me strength, my heart, my empathy, my courage, my sense of humour, my manners, my temper, my wildness, my tenacity.

“I’m a product of your heart, my sisters are a product of your heart, my brother is a product of your heart.”
