Elvis Presley’s granddaughter, Riley Keough, helms this magical night

Riley Keough, Elvis Presley’s eldest granddaughter, is currently the owner of Graceland. After her mother Lisa Marie Presley died in January 2023, Keough took over the role in August of that same year.

“To celebrate the holidays at Graceland and be a part of the King’s legacy is both an honor and an absolute dream come true,” said Jen Neal, Executive Vice President of Live Events and Specials, NBCUniversal Media Group. “We thank Riley and her family for allowing all of us to visit her grandfather’s iconic home. And share an intimate musical experience that Elvis would’ve truly loved.”
