Stevie Nicks says that after her first watch of Prime Video’s Daisy Jones & The Six, she was not sold. But after giving it another chance, lead actress Riley Keough — who stars as the titular Daisy in the show — changed her mind, Nicks shared in a Tuesday post to her social media accounts.
“Just finished watching @daisyjonesand6 for the 2nd time. In the beginning, it wasn’t really my story, but Riley seamlessly, soon became my story,” the “Seven Wonders” singer wrote. “It brought back memories that made me feel like a ghost watching my own story.”

Keough wrote a string of heart-eyed and excited emojis, while Camila Morrone wrote a string of hearts, Suki Waterhouse and Sebastian Chacon shared a teary-eyed emojis, and Sam Caflin wrote “blessings” for the Fleetwood Mac singer.
Reese Whiterspoon, whose Hello Sunshine company produced the series, chimed in, adding, “Oh my stars , Stevie !! This means the world to the whole @daisyjonesandthesix team! Thank YOU for cutting the path!” Author Taylor Jenkins Reid, who wrote the book the series is based on, reposted Nicks’ Instagram to her own Story and wrote, “Look at you @rileykeough, praise from down on high.”
