Miranda Lambert is a working musician, so, naturally, she's also a self-professed night owl. But for one of the most anticipated days of her year thus far, she had no trouble getting up early.

To mark the release of her fourth album, 'Four the Record,' out today (Nov. 1), Miranda joined host Matt Lauer for a brief segment on NBC's 'Today,' where she talked about how she's dealt with the whirlwind of personal and professional success she's experienced in the past year.

"I'm trying to learn how to enjoy everything that's going on while it's happening," she explained. "I think I've missed some things over the years by rushing through because so much great stuff is going on. I definitely shoot for the moon but right now I'm enjoying the stars."

Noting that her 2012 tour, aptly named On Fire will kick off in January with opening acts Chris Young and Jerrod Niemann, Miranda said, "Life on the road is my norm. That's my normal life even though it's a crazy one."

Her tour experiences have, she acknowledges, also left her feeling a bit spoiled. "My first tour was with Keith Urban," Miranda told The Boot. "Then I went with George Strait, then Dierks Bentley, then Toby Keith, then Kenny Chesney, then Brad Paisley, and then Brooks & Dunn. So I think I've covered all the big boys in our industry!"

'Four the Record' is available now. The On Fire tour kicks off Jan. 12 in Rockford, Ill.
