Archer/Park was an American country music duo composed of singer-songwriters Randy Archer and Johnny Park.[1] Signed to Atlantic Records in 1994, the duo released its sole album, We Got a Lot in Common, that year. Two of the album's singles entered the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks charts: "Where There's Smoke" at No. 29 and the title track at No. 63.

After their disbanding in 1994, Randy Archer found work as a songwriter, with Tim McGraw and John Michael Montgomery being among the acts who recorded his songs.[2] He and Park also wrote songs for Montgomery and for Elbert West. In 2006, Archer released a solo album entitled Shots in the Dark on an independent label.[2]

In 2009, Park and his son, Clint, formed the duo The Parks, which signed to Lyric Street Records subsidiary Carolwood Records.[3]
