Danny Keough (born 1964) is a musician and actor and former husband of American singer/songwriter Lisa Marie Presley.

Keough married Presley, the daughter of the late "King of Rock 'n' Roll" Elvis Presley and actress Priscilla Presley at the Church of Scientology in West Hollywood on October 3, 1988. Keough is a Scientologist, and met Lisa at the Scientology Celebrity Centre. The couple had dated for three years before marriage. Keough and Presley spent a three-month honeymoon on a cruise in the Caribbean, on a yacht owned by Church of Scientology, the SMV Freewinds. Scientology publicists stated that they were accompanied on the ship by Scientology celebrities including musician Chick Corea, and Olympic gymnast Charles Lakes. Priscilla Presley released a statement through publicist Paul Bloch: "Lisa and Danny have been talking for the past year about getting married and starting a family ... I couldn't be happier for the two of them at this very special time in their lives."

They have two children, Danielle Riley Keough born in 1989 and Benjamin Storm Keough born in 1992. Benjamin Storm Keough was delivered according to a Church of Scientology practice called "Silent birth". Paul Bloch, spokesman for Keough and Presley stated "The baby was delivered naturally and in complete silence in a calm and supportive environment," according to practices laid out by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard in his book Dianetics. Bloch stated "The book states that whatever is said at birth can affect the child's mental health in later life."
