Davis was born to Ben and Effie Davis in their home in northwest Georgia. Cleo was surrounded by music since he was born, with his mother playing the pump organ and father playing the banjo (clawhammer style). After his first guitar was sat on, he ordered a new one from a Sears and Roebuck catalog, which cost $2.40.
