If you find yourself impressed by Riley Keough's performance on Daisy Jones & The Six, you're not the only one. The 33-year-old actress has been wowing audiences with her role as the lead singer of a fictional rock band from the ’70s, and she comes by her musical talent naturally...because her grandfather was Elvis Presley. Yep, that's right—the King of Rock 'n' Roll. And now, fans have noticed that Keough wore a tribute to her late grandfather on the Prime Video series.

As noted by BuzzFeed TV editor Nora Dominick in a recent tweet, Keough uses a guitar strap in the series that looks just like an intricately-designed strap that was donned by her grandpa for his NBC ’68 Comeback Special.

And this wasn't merely a coincidence. People followed up on the theory and learned that the strap is “a replica called the New Yorker / the Woodstock model made by Ace Strap company.”

Keough's character, the titular Daisy Jones, is seen wearing this guitar strap during the second episode of the miniseries, titled “Track 2: I'll Take You There.” In the scene, Daisy performs in front of a live audience at a club for the first time.

People also reported that this isn't the only nod to Presley in the show. The costume designer for the miniseries, Denise Wingate, revealed that she recruited Love Melody—who made jumpsuits for Presley back in the ’70s—to design two coats for Daisy Jones. “I thought it was nice to bring that back in the fold and have a little bit of that history,” Wingate said.

Daisy Jones & The Six is based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Taylor Jenkins Reid. The story follows the rise and disbandment of a rock group in the ’70s, and it was loosely inspired by Fleetwood Mac.

Now, we'll be keeping an eye out for more Elvis Presley nods.
