Maren Morris’ fiance Ryan Hurd tells Entertainment Tonight that he got her a custom engagement ring. “I know what she likes and I had somebody in Canada put it together.

Remember Shania Twain’s hit song “That Don’t Impress Me Much?”  Do you know what it’s really about?  Shania tells Billboard magazine the song was inspired by naked photos of Brad Pitt in “that particular” woman’s magazine.  She explained, “I remember I had a girlfriend visiting me and it was near Christmas and we were baking cookies. I was writing this album and there was a scandal between Brad and Gwyneth Paltrow where there was naked photos of him [in the magazine]. And this was like all the rage. I just thought ‘I don’t know what all the fuss is about.’ I’m like, well that don’t impress me much, I mean what is all the fuss.”
